With emotive soul, woozy synths, warm harmonies, lo-fi electronics, and softly strummed guitars, British multi-hyphenate artist James Alexander Bright dreams of open spaces, warm surroundings, and a place to find comfort and peace both inside and out. An illustrator by day, James’ creative duality lends a visual aspect to his music. He often approaches the creation of a new song from a strong image, much like soundtracking a movie inside his head.
His latest album ‘Float’ comes two years after the release of debut album ‘Headroom’, which was described in MOJO as “Blissful choruses, sweetly nagging refrains and a lo-fi sensibility. Hard not to love”. Uncut remarked on “Intoxicating, highly evocative, sun-dappled soul”, Electronic Sound Magazine flattered with “Pastoral 21st century electronic psychedelia that knows all the best clubs in town” and Louder Than War called it “Exceptional and exhilarating”. James’ music has been played across BBC 6 Music (where he’s recorded guest mixes for Tom Ravenscroft and Huey Morgan), Amazing Radio, Bandcamp Weekly, FIP, KCRW, Soho Radio, Triple J, and Worldwide FM.
