BRIGHT LIGHT BRIGHT LIGHT’S TALES OF THE CITY EP OUT NOW

PLAYING BROOKLYN’S MUSIC HALL OF WILLIAMSBURG TONIGHT

Bright Light Bright Light’s highly anticipated Tales of the City EP is out now on his own Self Raising Records. Stream/download here.

The EP features singles “New York Pretty,” the pride-themed video for which just debuted via NewNowNext, and “Into The Night,” as well as “Thinking About It,” a favorite cut from BLBL’s most recent full length Choreography. The title is taken from the seminal Armistead Maupin series of the same name, and chronicles, in part, Bright Light Bright Light’s move from London to New York.

To celebrate the release, Bright Light Bright Light—the solo project of vocalist, songwriter and producer Rod Thomas—will play a very special release show tonight at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg and will DJ the July installment of his monthly Romy & Michelle’s Saturday Afternoon Tea Dance tomorrow at C’mon Everybody. Please see below for full details.

The EP serves as a companion piece to Choreography, joining a pair of Cinematography EPs, which feature Thomas’ covers of his favorite songs from film, which have served as major inspirations for the Bright Light Bright Light project.

Choreography continues to receive critical acclaim:

“Bubblegum electro-pop that transports you to Working Girl-era realness” —Rolling Stone

“A lavish and maximalist affair, full of wistful, heartfelt pop songs.” —The Guardian

Choreography…swoons listeners with bursts of ‘80s-inspired pop and colorful, melodic anthems.” —OUT

“Resistance to its charms are futile.” —Mojo

“Out-and-out pop album of the year.” —Record Collector, ★★★★★

“A brilliant record” —PopGlitz


Thomas, born in Wales and based in both London and New York, formed Bright Light Bright Light in 2010 and has since released three LPs: 2012’s Make Me Believe In Hope, 2014’s Life is Easy and Choreography.
