The Bright / Press

“Dallas band and MTV favorite The Bright shines onstage”

“Who’s got the groove? Some bands on the Dallas Rocks! showcase at House of Blues do — and some don’t”

“SXSW 2012: Dallas' The Bright dreams up a beguiling show at Bar Louie Julie Lange likes to pour on the drama. Her stage gestures flow and slam creating a beguiling hybrid of angelic songstress and devilish temptress. And when her voice soars the combination takes the song to a higher level. That was particularly the case during the two closing numbers, "Charmed" and "Diving for Stars," a pair of tour-de-force performances.”

“The Bright, fronted by TCU grad Julie Lange and fresh off its appearance on "Big D NYE," is preparing to release the follow-up to the sextet's debut In Lucid Dreams. This self-funded sophomore album, recorded at Bass Propulsion Laboratories, debuted at a live "listening party" at Jack's Backyard in Dallas, where the band played the record in its entirety and polled the audience to select the first single.”

“Dreamy melodies layered over rock rhythms and pop hooks. There’s an international flair, definitely a British rock ambience that mingles with an American pop punch.Origin of that sound: “All of us are absolutely enamored with British rock because it has a little more exploration to it, and the dreaminess comes in,” Curtis says before mentioning Cocteau Twins, Radiohead , the Police, the Cars, Elbow and Pink Floyd as major influences. “That is a common bond, the wash-all-over-you sound, the airiness.” “Each of us has a niche we enjoy in that broad spectrum of British rock ’n’ roll,” Lange says. “If you take one person out of this band, it would change the sound of this band.””

“Arlington band the Bright toast the release of its second full-length CD Pop-rock hooks and sprinkles of dreamy pixie dust characterize the Bright. The six-member Arlington band, composed of singer Julie Lange, drummer Robert Yahne, keyboardist Eric Jenkins, guitarists Kell Curtis and Taylor Tatsch, and bassist Miguel Fair, is ready to unveil its second full-length disc, Objects of My Affection, which follows 2008’s debut, In Lucid Dreams. Buoyed by tracks such as “Charmed,” “Deep Fall” and “How I Feel,” Objects of My Affection should keep the Bright in the local spotlight for a long spell. Catch the band onstage Friday night at House of Blues, 2200 N. Lamar St., Dallas. The music starts at 8:30 with opener David Dunn. Tickets are $16.77 through Live Nation.”

“Today's performers make music, and their own buzz These days, performers are not only creating songs, but also their own marketing strategies.”

“This Dallas-based band is making waves with dynamic vocalist Julie Lange singing out over a modern-rock sound that combines an alternative edge with a power-pop sensibility.”

“When something seems meant-to-be, things just sort of fall into place and happen when needed. This is the case for the Dallas-based pop rock band, The Bright.”

“The Bright is on the edge of something fantastic and people are taking notice and showing support. With no weak spots on this CD, The Bright has earned a rare 10”

“Beautiful, stylish stuff that just might infiltrate your daydreams.”

Preston Jones - Fort Worth Star Telegram

“That strange collective with a penchant for writing the most radio-friendly songs this side of LA, we mean that in a good way”

Dallas Observer

“An estrogen and testosterone musical smoothie!”

“One of the truly dynamic local bands with a shot at crossover popularity without giving any quarter.”

Justin Press - Dallas Observer

“The Bright’s Mix of alt-rock edge with power pop grandeur and charismatic vocalist Julie Lange is a winning formula. The production value here is superb. The band’s cover of “Kashmir” is epic." - esdmusic.com, Best Albums of 2008 / CD Review”
