Brandon G just released a wonderfully woven single that brings a ton of soul and blends it with an alternative edge that comes through with a heavy handed emotionally driven single that showcases the artists presence and passion for the craft.
"Bright Light Shine" has a powerful sound to it and its mostly due to Brandon's pure vocal power which brings emo-rock styles and takes it into a contemporary platform and really just belts out with everything possible to create this whole different place you get whisked away to.
The release features lead guitar work and a massive and lush soundscape that really has the ability to wash you away with it all.
This song has an inspirational undertone to it, and it feels alive and breathing. Its cinematic tonality is also present, and this also comes from that emotional drive the song was built from.
It's refreshing to hear music like this. Music that has a real and genuine sound behind it. Music that comes from someplace real and meaningful.
"Bright Light Shine" accompanies another single dubbed "We Will Slow Dance" which boasts more of a power ballad feel. Piano based and packing quite a punch as well.
