Bio

The Bright Young Things are an indie/electro four piece from Sydney, Australia who specialize in dance floor ready new-wave/electro with a dash of drum'n'bass and indie rock undertones. Beginning in 2009, the band have crafted their unique sound and grown from a duo to a full four piece touring act over the space of five years. During this time, BYT managed to get their singles as feature clips on ABC Rage, played on community radio across Australia and recorded a song on an Aria award winning album with hip-hop wordsmith 360. This year they grew into a four piece, expanded their sound and decided to head straight into the studio with Producer/engineer Tim Powles (The Church, Regular John, The Khanz) . The result is a bunch of recordings that sound darker overall, more complete and raw while still retaining their trademark synth based sound. “Drawing inspiration for the new recordings was easy, the hard part was fitting it all into a cohesive sound and we managed to create something unique, fun and ultimately our own in the process!” Aj TOUR DATES: 9th Of November (SINGLE LAUNCH) Brighton Up Bar, Darlinghurst 18+ w/ VCS, My FICTION & WUNDERGROUND 21st of December Spectrum, Sydney 18+
