Bright Town was born of five Liverpool-based songwriters and their shared love of vocal harmony and melodic interplay. Unsatisfied with the offerings of the local scene, they embarked upon a rigorous schedule of writing, recording and rehearsing during late 2020, aiming to create for themselves what they could not find elsewhere. Despite starting out as a recording project, the live band came together naturally during the recording of their debut self-titled EP and instantly began to make waves in the the city in the summer of 2021 - supporting Mick Head & The Red Elastic Band at a sold-out hometown show and attracting the interest of several local labels. The band followed this over the subsequent months with other sold out shows supporting the likes of Jamie Webster and Hushtones, an appearance at Sound City Festival, as well as a sell out headline show at The Kazimier. As the band's live shows continued to impress, they continued to keep one eye and ear firmly focused on the songwriting core that had remained active since the beginning. Applying their unique and umistakeably Mersey-tinged pop sensibilities to influences as diverse as Folk, Krautrock, Lo-Fi, Gypsy Jazz and beyond, the band’s sophomore EP began to take shape as they headed into 2022. Entitled Smithereens!, and recorded with ex-Peach Fuzz frontman Nathaniel Cummings at Yawn Studios, this offering displays the band at simultaneously their most diverse and yet accessible. The EP's release was supported by sold out shows alongside Trudy and The Romance, The Sway and their first trip to mainland Europe to play Blåfrost Festivalen in Norway.
