American indie rock, folk rock singer songwriter Kevin Morby’s ‘Campfire‘ showed up on the latest episode of the Showtime drama series Your Honor last night — Your Honor, Season 1, Episode 5 (which aired on January 3rd, 2020).
The track was one of two songs playing as Adam is at the cafe talking to Fia, Rocco’s sister.
Kevin Morby’s ‘Campfire‘ is from the singer’s sixth studio album Sundowner, which was released in late 2020 via the indie label Dead Oceans.
The album was released while much of the world was shutdown due to governments’ response to Covid-19, but still made it onto the Top Albums of 2020 lists of three critics — Berlin based Nothing But Hope and Passion, the British music magazine Uncut and American music blog Brooklyn Vegan.
Not surprisingly really, as it is a lovely piece of work.
‘Campfire‘ was the first single from the 10-track album, and is a mellow song that requires a few listens before you begin to hear its real beauty.
Once you do, it is one of those that immediately goes on repeat.
‘Campfire‘ also came with a stunningly filmed official music video of Kevin Morby walking through a desolate desert somewhere in America playing his guitar, until he joins a woman (Katie Crutchfield of Waxahatchee, and Morby’s real-life partner) sitting in a classic Ford truck out in the same desert painting her nails.
The pair then drive off with Morby in the bed of the truck still holding his guitar and singing.
The video ends with the couple stopped in tall, dry grass, the headlights on, the sun going down and the two of the dancing.
Listen to Kevin Morby’s ‘Campfire‘ as heard on last night’s Your Honor in that music video below, and on the singer’s Sundowner album.
The critically-acclaimed limited series Your Honor is currently airing on Showtime.
