Interview – Brightlight City

The new single ‘Thieves’ is out, how are you feeling about its release?

It’s out today (Friday). We are all feeling very excited and very positive about its release. The response and build up so far for ‘Thieves’ has been really incredible to see.

If you could only describe the track in three words, what would they be?

Passionate, Energetic, Emotional.

It come across as very emotional, what was the influence for the single?

The influence for ‘Thieves’ is about how people are quick to pass judgement and enjoy watching failure. It’s about embracing any doubts others may have in you and to keep fighting for what you believe in, laughing in the face of danger and adversity.

Will there be a full length album coming soon?

Not just yet but that is definitely something we are writing and working towards! We have a brand new EP coming your way first! We are super excited as these are our finest songs to date! Looking to release this around September time.

So, what can fans expect from it?

Our lovely fans and followers can definitely expect a HUGE step-up from our older material. The new EP has a real contrast of heartfelt melodies and aggression, massive riffs and heavy drums! A musical journey from start to finish.The video for ‘Thieves’ shows that you clearly have a lot of fun and energy during shows, will you be touring the UK any time soon?

We have the best time when we perform. It’s what we do best, simply living in the moment and enjoying ourselves. Just let the passion and energy take over! We are on tour from September onwards, dates below:

SEPTEMBER 2016:

SAT 03 // THE RAILWAY // WINCHESTER

WED 07 // TOOTING TRAM & SOCIAL // LONDON

FRI 09 // THE PHOENIX BAR // HIGH WYCOMBE

SAT 10 // ALWAYS THE SUN FESTIVAL // GUILDFORD

FRI 16 // THE FIGHTING COCKS // KINGSTON

SAT 17 // BBC INTRODUCING: LIVE SESSION // BRIGHTON

7. What has been your highlight of the festival season so far this year?

Playing the Camden Rocks Festival a few weeks back. Such an incredible experience, the response we got was overwhelming. It was a real memorable moment of everything going perfectly and our singer, Jamie was climbing the walls and barriers getting the audience pumped!

What’s been your favourite song of the summer so far?

Definitely Biffy Clyro’s song ‘Friends and Enemies’ from their awesome new album, ‘Ellipsis’. The song has that ‘stadium rock’ vibe which Biffy do so well! The heaviness of the chorus is so chuggy and incredibly melodic.You can only listen to the last song you listened to for the rest of your life. What is it and how do you feel about it?

Haha, well luckily the last played song on my iPod was ‘Everlong’ by Foo Fighters! I am very happy with that, I could probably listen to that for the rest of my existence!

Finally, why should people buy ‘Thieves’ on 22nd this month?

For the simple fact that they enjoy the song! But also to support currently unsigned music and artists. We feel there are an overwhelming number of talented bands out there who put their creative energy into something they are so passionate about! So supporting and purchasing songs really does mean the world to us! Thank you!
