Bright Light x2's Disco Moment
Another jewel from Bright Light Bright Light. For me, the unique power in Rod's songs often comes down to the way the music - in this case, galloping discopop - plays against his voice, which often sounds quite plaintive. Disco Moment, out on August 7th, is defined by a beautifully sad lyric...
Oh, you seem to change your mind in a heartbeat,
But still you try to keep your arms somewhere around me
Well, not like this, it's not how I operate...
I am open, I am open, but I might just close.
The video is fantastic... the actors look like they've been ripped from a fashion spread in an issue of The Face, from Rod's beloved 1990's.
