Cruising into year two after a big 2021 bringing a new brand of fun & funk to the masses, Brightsider is warbling wurli and funky drums, slinky bass lines and soulful vocals sliding into the pocket where Winston Surfshirt, Matt Corby and Jamiroquai meet.
A new project out of Margaret River, Western Australia ft. Dan White (of WA’s Best Regional Act 2019 Blue Child Collective & director of The WA Guitar Festival), Chris Musitano (Brass Party), Wayan Biliondana (Psychedelic Porn Crumpets) & Ziggy Atwell (the man!), Brightsider's upbeat smoothie of Indie RnB, Funk-Soul-Groove and South-West sunshine is a must-see, certain to leave a smile on your face!
Produced in Dan’s Margaret River home studio and polished up with James Newhouse at Lamb Chop, the group punched out half a dozen singles in their first year, the first of which was covered by Perth indie-folk lord Michael Dunstan on RTR’s “Slightly Odway” and dubbed “a must have for the soundtrack to summer” by Around The Sound.
Rolling into the new year with new tunes, the group dropped anthemic single “Erase” in January, following it up with the funkiest of party tunes in “Crystal Ball”, and their latest offering "Memories" out June 10, which delves into how we often remember things differently, and the nature in which memories are distilled through the eye of the beholder.
With plenty to come and even more fun on the horizon why wouldn’t you be looking on the brightside?
