Northern Beaches four-piece The Brights may have only formed a year and a half ago but they’re already demonstrating a knack for crafting dynamic and colourful sonic gems.
The Brights bring an energetic and youthful approach to garage punk on their two new tracks, All This Evil and Love, that will simultaneously smack you in the face and transport you to the summertime.
The band all grew up on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, something that is evident in their music. Their energetic sound is the musical embodiment of where the city meets the sea; it’s fuzzed-out garage punk sprinkled with hints of adolescent misbehaviour.
All This Evil is a memorable and dynamic tune that explores the evil thoughts that your brain conjures up in nightmares, with the hook “I won’t sleep when I’m dead with all this evil in my head.” This crunchy guitar-driven tune packs a true punch, with relentless drum beats, epic guitar riffs and catchy melodies, it simultaneously smacks you in the head and makes you want to dance. It brings an energetic mixture of summer vibes, psychedelic tones and lashings of garage punk rock.
Love is the sonic equivalent to a long summer’s drive along the coastline. There’s a euphoric feel to the hazy, melodic lead vocals paired with the distant harmonies. It’s cruisey but soaked in attitude, with woozy, hypnotic guitar riffs that transport you to the summertime.
It’s still early days for The Brights, but judging by what we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more quality tunes from these Northern Beaches boys.
If you wanna check these guys out live, they’ll be launching these two singles at the Park House in Mona Vale this Friday the 12th of July, it’s sure to be a hell of a show.
