Bright Light Bright Light is the popstar name of Rod Thomas.
The name comes from Gremlins 2, wouldn't you know.
Bright Light Bright Light, that is. Not Rod Thomas.
The music is very much of the Great British Electropop Tradition, in the vein of Pet Shop Boys, Erasure, Depeche Mode etc etc.
His 2011 single 'Disco Moment' is literally amazing and does the whole 'tears on the dancefloor' thing very well indeed.
Live shows have featured "silver foil hats, a lot of dry ice and a bare-chested male dancer doing the robot", which, while not exactly a stretch for an electropop live show, still sounds approximately 57 times better than enduring James Blake squelching his way through an hour-long underwater-dubstep borefest.
Yes that is a beard you see in the photograph.
His debut album 'Make Me Believe In Hope' is really quite good and if you haven't heard it then you're a fool only to yourself.
