"Feel It"? Indeed!


Wow - what a great album from a multi-talented artist. Critics have been raving about this collection and I can see why. So authentic... I first heard a snippet of "Feel It" on iTunes and immediately fell for it. The album wasn't released yet, so I recorded the snippet on my iPhone and played it for the last three weeks. (Desperate? Yes. Dorky? Hell yes.) But just try getting that chorus out of your head. Other gems like "Waiting for a Feeling" and "A New Word to Say" speak for themselves. Thanks for such great new music, BLX2. I'll be following your ascent and rooting for you the whole way...

Unique and truly amazing


If I have any beef with this album, it's that as a fan I've heard half these tracks already in various EPs/singles/downloads. But that's about it. Though I think he's known in London for his 90s club nights, here Bright Light Bright Light AKA Rod Thomas shows his range. Love Part II is a great anthem, and How to Make a Heart is really very poignant. Disco Moment is very evocative of Robyn's Body Talk trilogy. Let's hope he crosses over to the U.S. more often!

About Bright Light Bright Light

The brainchild of folk singer Rod Thomas, Bright Light Bright Light is an electro-pop outfit influenced by artists as diverse as Kate Bush, Depeche Mode, and Ace of Base. Growing up between two villages in the South Wales valleys, Thomas learned how to play several instruments from an early age, and started busking in the London Underground in his teens. In 2006, he released several singles under his own name through his own label, Self Raising Records, before creating Bright Light Bright Light, named after a line in Gremlins. After working on material with Boom Bip and Andy Chatterley (Kylie Minogue), he supported Marina & the Diamonds and the Noisettes on their U.K. tours, and remixed tracks for Ellie Goulding and Nerina Pallot. Bright Light Bright Light was one of the first acts to sign to the Popjustice Hi-Fi record label, and the BLBL debut album, Make Me Believe in Hope, featuring the single "Love, Pt. 2," was released in 2012. His second album, Life Is Easy, came out in 2014, following a move to New York, and provided him with his first chart entries on both sides of the pond. His currency increased and he drew the attention of Elton John, who became something of a mentor to him. John appeared on BLBL's third album, Choreography, which was released in 2016. Thomas' biggest, boldest, and most personal statement to date, it was a bright, technicolor pop record inspired by his love of the music and movies of the '80s and '90s, and also featured appearances by Scissor Sisters and actor Alan Cumming. ~ Jon O'Brien
