Brighton are a band from Haugesund who play catchy indie pop, obvious reference points would be Swedish band Kent and The Killers, with their sound ranging from the introverted to the epic. The band’s lyrics have an almost unique narrative style each song telling its own story. Their track “The Orchid” tells the tale of a cult member who escapes and becomes a bare knuckle boxer in the city and wishes he was back living the simple and harmonious life amongst the members of The Orchid. “St. James Society” is about a philanthropic society who in the early 1900s were engaged in trying to cure opium addicts by giving them heroin. “Alexander” is a story of a World War II fighter pilot who’s ambushed behind enemy lines. Brighton began to pick up a bit of heat domestically after an NRK Urørt (band of the week)in Autumn 2010 and Bergensavisen (a big regional paper) proclaimed “St. James Society” as their track of the summer. The band have a whole host of shows in the run up to by:Larm and are currently recording their debut EP.
