Artist on Artist: Bright Light Bright Light meets Vince Clarke Pt 1

Wednesday 01 March 2017

We hung out with Bright Light Bright Light in Brooklyn, who kindly brought one of his friends along for the chat.

Spindle are huge fans of the genius that is Bright Light Bright Light! As well as featuring in our new #Dreams issue, Rod Thomas aka BrightLightx2 also soundtracked our recent Spindle issue launch party in New York, taking to the DJ decks to unearth a bundle of nostalgia.

2016 was an incredible year for the artist who counts none other than Elton John amongst his peers. A mammoth UK and European tour, festival appearances, the release of the anticipated album ‘Choreography’, as WELL as an EP release, kept the Welshman firmly on his toes.

Kicking off 2017 with a new single ‘Running Back To You’, as well as being a charity ambassador, we caught up with the man himself who graciously invited one his good friends along.

Vince Clarke is a name you will recognise. The former Depeche Mode, Yazoo and Erasure member has recently reworked Bright Light Bright Light’s last single, aside from influencing all of his creative output.

We were delighted to host them in our studio to hear them talk candidly and exclusively about being fans of one anothers work and being part of the music industry cog.
