Having had their genesis beset by both a global pandemic and a changing line-up, Brite Spires are ready to make an impact on our 2020 summer with their latest single ‘Youth Movement Disco (2020 version)’. The new track is a shining example of Brite Spires’ indie pop alchemy, which has been revamped, super-charged and sees the debut of their new singer.
Building huge support from their local scenes in Oxford and London, gaining support from the likes of BBC Introducing and BBC Radio 6 Music along the way, Brite Spires is an electro-disco utopian dream, bringing together elements of classic synth bands of the 80s and 90s with the shimmering cool of the likes of St. Vincent and Christine and the Queens.
The newly revamped Brite Spires is made up of Georgian born singer Natalia Stark who started as a classical musician, then a go-go girl and international model and now, indie pop band frontwoman, Italian-German bassist Fischer Luigi, drummer Cal Brumhead and guitarist Drew Atkins, whose musical journey has seen him learning his trade from working with Supergrass and Radiohead as well as from backing DJ extraordinaire, Carl Cox, at a rave in front of thousands of people and opening Cornbury Festival Main stage alongside Sophie Ellis-Bextor.
The new quartet have combined effortlessly for this new track which is bound to be the soundtrack to your summer! Referring to Nat’s early life in Georgia and the oppression they felt by their larger neighbours, Russia, ‘Youth Music Disco (2020 Version)’ mixes in irresistible song-writing and disco beats to create an aural glitter-dome of New Order Synth, Ladytron robotic chic and a much-needed boost to an industry which is still hugely dominated by bands fronted by men.
So, give ‘Youth Movement Disco (2020 Version) a listen on Spotify, give the guys a follow on social, and get their tunes on repeat as we eagerly await the pubs re-opening and a night out at last!
