James Alexander Bright Equal parts hazy sunshine psychedelia, lo-fi electronic soul, melodic pop nous, a husky croon and forwards-looking-backwards studio techniques. Singer/multi-instrumentalist/producer/songwriter James Alexander Bright has now taken off his metaphorical mask to create under his own name. His new songs draw back the curtain of escapism and begin to encompass the real world into his distinctive vocals. Sometimes oblique, sometimes explicit; the songs’ lyrics permit the listener licence to draw their own interpretations as to their meaning. With a sentiment of universality to the record, it’s grounded in primal emotion, a simpler way of life and living it. Aside from his own releases, Bright has featured on records by Slugabed (Anticon) and Morgan Hislop (Activia Benz) and played guitar on Tropics’ album ‘Rapture’ on Innovative Leisure.
