When you announced Campfire Stories, I was excited. Come February, you released it. I must have heard it about 7-8 times in its entirety on train journeys in this urban jungle of Mumbai. Yet, the record took me to a place where there were mountains and cool breeze, small houses and empty streets, and an odd smile in the air. Odd, because we are not used to it.

How Goa Finally Got its Most Promising Indie Artist

While you could call that a labor of love, the record is more aptly described as a love letter, but to a place, not a person. Campfire Stories might be Bent’s breakout, but the album’s true star is Goa, which features explicitly in the lyrics of songs like “First Monsoon Rain” and is evoked sonically in others, like in the vernal strings on “Song With No Name.” Even album closer “Bus to Bangalore,” which seems as though it could be about a long-distance relationship, is directed at Goa.
