Newcastle-based musician Callum Pitt creates indie rock music that is grounded in a folk foundation. On his new single ‘Mayfly’, Callum starts out quite unassuming before the guitar and his clean voice are joined by an increasingly anthemic rise. It reminds me of the twee beauty of artists like C Duncan early on before twisting into something like Sufjan Stevens later on.
When speaking about his music, Callum Pitt says that it provides an outlet for him to write about depression and anxiety but with an optimistic tone. He doesn’t want to just convey the lows without looking at the rises that may well follow. That gives Callum’s brand of indie folk a bittersweet but hopeful undertone.
Enjoy the video for ‘Mayfly’ below – the single is out now. For more information on Callum Pitt, follow him on Instagram.
