Have You Heard - The Bright Young Things

24 April 2012 | 11:26 am | Staff Writer

They're "bright and young and thingish".

Your music is…?
A bit of dance, a bit of rock, a bit of New Wave! Basically, a melting pot of everything we listen to!

Which acts inspired you to produce your own music and why?
Queen, The Pet Shop Boys, Duran Duran and New Order are all big influences. Individually though, we take a lot of inspiration from The Clash, Muse, Bruce Springsteen and so many others.

What's your wildest ambition for your music?
To have the wide-reaching cultural influence of Star Wars. Or Freddie Mercury's falsetto. Or just be able to flaunt outlandish facial hair and be able to explain it away with “Oh, we're musicians”.

Why should we come and see you?
Because we are bright and young and thingish, and because we love music and love playing it and are awfully witty when we've had a few. Also, because AJ (our singer) has promised to learn to moonwalk.
