Your Love

A 1 track neo-soul single (4m 58s) — released May 8th 2024 on Athens Of The North

A massive hug to esoteric dancefloors across the world, 'Your Love' is a disco-fueled highlight of 'Cool Cool', the upcoming third album by British multi-hyphenate James Alexander Bright. The song is "based on the feeling of love and chasing it", says James. "It has a certain kinetic charm but holds a melancholic note also".

James' voice, pitched somewhere between Eddie Chacon, Beck and Michael McDonald, takes a confident lead, while impressive multi-instrumentalism sees him perform on guitar, bass, keys, programming and percussion. Initially written and recorded at his home studio in the rolling hills of the Hampshire countryside, 'Your Love' was completed with regular collaborator Peter Lyons in East London with drums by Gillan McLaughlin and Joris Feiertag.

The past six years has seen James release a veritable treasure trove of music, including 'Mallorca' and 'Strange Folk' EPs, debut album 'Headroom', joyous second 'Float', an album of collaborations and reworks with cosmic Americana-disco DJ/producer duo Flying Mojito Bros, and a new project with Groove Armada's Tom Findlay as Bright & Findlay.

James balances music alongside the creative duality of a job in illustration and the responsibilities and constraints that come with raising a young family. Utilising any spare moment to write and record new ideas, his creative output under various projects had been relentless. Turning his back on apathetic major label offers in his early 20s, he's released through cult DIY label Tape Club Records, German stalwart !K7 Music and now with Scottish tastemaker Athens Of The North, presenting an evolving vision of a sound that has touched on everything from outsider art-rock to machine funk, mystic folk to experimental jazz.

A dynamic set of urgent funkers, gentle soul ballads, head-nodders, fuzzy folkers and straight-up disco bangers; album 'Cool Cool' is set for release on 26th July via Athens Of The North.
