about

OUT MAY 27 2013

Bumpkin Island was formed in 2010 in an attic that had been converted into a home studio. The idea was to mix organic and digital sounds and textures, to finally find their own playground : cold guitars, toys and synths, all intermingling into an aerial pop music.​

Having lived a year ( 2011) full of events, (Art Rock and Transmusicales de Rennes Festivals, success with the InrockLab not forgetting the release of 2 EPs), the musical ensemble came back to its native breton counties so as to focus on the writing of their first album,
'Ten Thousand Nights', mixed by Birgir Jòn Birgisson (Sigùr Ros, Mùm, The album leaf).

Fit for daydreaming, this first long format is the result of a year of musical research, exploration and experimentation. As you discover the 9 tracks, where refined melodies, oppressive textures and wide-angle sounds become entangled, they reveal an innovative and demanding home-made craftsmanship, a breeding ground for a delicate and ambitious pop.
