TUNE Bright Light Bright Light - Uh-Huh!
BRIGHT LIGHT BRIGHT LIGHT
announces ‘Tough Love’ EP and
new single ‘Uh Huh!’ ahead of autumn tour
“Uh Huh!” is the tantalising new single ahead of Bright Light Bright Light’s upcoming EP “Tough Love”. It’s a trademark blend of rich brassy synths and lustrous vocals, that marks the track as an unreserved synth pop gem. Less bittersweet than previous release and EP title track “Tough Love”, the exuberant “Uh Huh!” sees Bright Light Bright Light truly put his “money where [his] mouth is”.
The single is the latest teaser of “Tough Love” , which is set to drop September 21st, as well as a performance at Manchester Pride and a UK Tour scheduled to coincide with the EP release.
Bright Light Bright Light is Welsh-born, NYC living artist Rod Thomas who makes pop music influenced heavily by cinema, with nods to the 80s and 90s, his formative decades, in its colourful, effervescent presentation.
To date, he's toured the world opening for Elton John (55 shows), Erasure (27 shows), Scissor Sisters, Ellie Goulding, Hercules & Love Affair and more, as well as playing his own rapturously received gigs, numerous Pride festivals and sharing a bill with Kylie Minogue and Take That at Hyde Park. And alongside making music, he's a celebrated DJ who runs a Time Out NY Recommended party 'Romy & Michele's Saturday Afternoon Tea Dance' based on one of his favourite films.
Bright Light Bright Light has been an active fundraiser for LGBTQIA charities and an ambassador for Localgiving charity for the last few years. Alongside making his music, he runs his ‘Romy & Michele’s Saturday Afternoon Tea Dance’ daytime parties in NYC, London and LA which have been commended by Time Out NY as one of the most fun, inclusive events in NYC, and he was asked to take over their LGBT nightlife section for an issue last Summer.
