Bright Light Bright Light on WonderlandIn Pop
Wonderland Magazine have included Bright Light Bright Light on their Wonderlist: Tracks of The Week.
Describing Bright Light Bright Light’s ‘All In The Name ft Elton John’ as ‘epicly uplifting’, the magazine championed the singer’s new album ‘Choreography’.
The culmination of every colour, shade and glistening hook refined by Rod Thomas aka Bright Light Bright Light over his two studio albums to date, ‘Choreography’ truly is his first major pop opus.
“I knew I wanted to call it Choreography,” Rod affirms. “I thought about dancing being banned in New York and about how good it makes you feel. I thought about choreographing my life in London and New York. I DJ a lot, my job is to make people dance and I love watching people dance. That was important for the record.”
Debut single ‘All In The Name’ features long time friend and mentor Sir Elton John who shares vocals on the track.
At the close of his massive world tour supporting Sir Elton John, the maestro took Rod aside and invited him to open for him on New Year’s Eve at The Barclay Centre, a stone’s throw from Rod’s new home in Crown Heights, New York. “The whole room went crazy. Just down the road from my flat. It was, no word of a lie, the happiest night of my life.”
Work then began on ‘Choreography’ in January 2015. The Welsh musician moved from London to New York three years ago. On ‘Choreography’, he makes peace with this great personal shift and opening single ‘All In The Name’ is his most balls-out 3.30minute pop moment yet, emboldened by all the album’s collaborators joining in for the ride – Sir Elton John, Alan Cumming and each individual Scissor Sister.
