When one of our favourite Brussels DJ’s (Walrus) teams up with a great voice (Ciska) to release a record on local heroes Holger Tracks’ new imprint, there’s not a lot that can go wrong. Meet Bright Entity, an electronica duo that seems to have come straight out of one of those popular 80’s beach wallpapers. A little retro, a little cheesy, but oh-so-fucking-lovely.
We have three gorgeous vinyls (yes, actual, physical records) of Bright Entity’s debut EP to giveaway to the first three readers to email firstname.lastname@example.org with a selfie and a smile.
A word about your name
Our name consists of two words. I looked everywhere for the list of names that didn’t make it, but unfortunately couldn’t find it. It’s funny, ’cause they all had two words in them. I guess that is subconsciously important about our name.
A word about your music
A word about your hometown, your scene
The hardest thing about getting this release out?
To match our agenda with the label and our producer.
A habit you had during recording this release?
Lot’s of talking about old synthesizers and lots of drinking coffee.
A beginner’s mistake you made whilst preparing this release?
Trying to “find” our sound.
The first track to which you completely lost it
‘A Light’. We recorded it during a rehearsal so we wouldn’t forget what we did. Surprisingly, we really liked this lo-fi, ‘je m’en fous’-recording and struggled really hard to reproduce something that sounded alike in the studio. In the end we kept the original recording and used it as a reference for the mix of the other tracks.
What “making it” means to you?
To keep on working.
What first experience you’d like to re-live
A sunday evening, panoramic view, 20 people, playing our very first concert behind a silver screen on the 19th floor of a flat, overlooking Brussels.
The first band t-shirt you ever got
Your favourite debut by another band?
Peaking Lights – 936
Ricardo Villalobos – Alcachofa
What your parents think about your music?
They absolutely love it.
Where are you going to next?
We’ll be releasing an instrumental tape, and we’ll record a second EP. Playing a lot of live gigs is definitely our plan. Holler if you’re interested!
