Bright Light Bright Light

Bright Light Bright Light is singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rod Thomas. He already has fans in BBC Radio 1's Lauren Laverne, Rob Da Bank and Huw Stephens. His music mixes a love of the dancefloor with classic songwriting and has variously been described as 'Kylie-class euphoric pop (The Times), 'sleek dancefloor glamour' (ASOS) and 'ridiculously melodic electronic pop' (The Times Playlist). Debut single 'Love Part II' was written and produced with Andy Chatterley (Kylie, Nerina Pallot, Diana Vickers) and released by Popjustice HiFi last September, accompanied by b-side 'Cry At Films', which features Scissor Sisters' Del Marquis on backing vocals and guitar. When not singing his own tunes, Bright Light Bright Light knocks out remixes of other artists' work – recent versions of Kelis 'Acapella' and Ellie Goulding's 'Under The Sheets' have found themselves spread across many a tastemaker blog. Throughout November 2010, Rod was on the road with Ellie Goulding on her UK tour. In the last few months he has also shared a stage with friends Sound Of Arrows and James Yuill, Dansette Junior and The Hoosiers. Rod runs his own label, Self Raising Records, and is a member of east-London party 'collective' Sink The Pink, described by The Guardian as 'what happens when Studio 54 links up with a toddlers birthday party in a suburban ball pool centre". He is obsessed with 90s dance music, and his favourite band is Ace Of Base. NME recently called him 'the boy Robyn in all but name'.
