Bronston is a Scottish rock band formed in 2017 in Edinburgh, Scotland. The band’s line-up includes Adam Campbell (lead vocals, guitar), James Callaghan (bass guitar, backing vocals), Ryan Firth (keyboard, guitar, backing vocals), and Mary Hennys (drums, percussion).
Bronston released their first single, I Feel Safe, in 2017, showcasing their riff-oriented, synth-augmented, alternative rock style to a sold out audience at an accompanying show at Sneaky Pete’s, Edinburgh.
Their sound incorporates a variety of different styles and influences, taking inspiration from artists such as Arctic Monkeys, Tame Impala, Foals, and Anderson .Paak.
Bronston’s music explores themes of external oppression, alternative realities, and anxieties about the future. Their lyrics link internal conflicts with notions of a future shaped by philosophical and technological advances.
The band have been touring around Scotland and have been featured at La Belle Angele, King Tut's, SoFar Sounds Aberdeen, and the BBC Stage at the Edinburgh Fringe, among others.
Most recently, the band have collaborated with producer Rod Jones of Idlewild, to create two new tracks. Leaving Utopia was released in January 2019 alongside a psychedelic music video featuring the members of the band. Burnt Snakes, a powerful, grooving, modern-rock track is due for release on the 31st May 2019.
