“This is an examination of madness and loss,” says Brian Christinzio, the inimitable force behind BC Camplight. “I hope it starts a long overdue conversation.”
Fired by his ongoing battle with mental illness, ‘Shortly After Takeoff’ is the final and finest chapter of what Christinzio calls his ‘Manchester Trilogy’, following 2015’s ‘How To Die In The North’ and 2018’s ‘Deportation Blues’. All three albums were created after the native Philadelphian had moved to Manchester.
Like ‘Deportation Blues’, ‘Shortly After Takeoff’ spans singer-songwriter classicism, gnarly synth-pop and ‘50s rock’n’roll, with Christinzio’s similarly distinctive, flexible vocal carrying a fearless approach to lyrical introspection but the new album is a major leap forward in songwriting sophistication and lyrical communication. “It’s important to stress that this isn’t a redemption story,” he says. “I'm a guy who maybe
lives a little hard and I’m in the thick of some heavy stuff. But as a result, I think I've made my best record.”
