Though having formed only a few months ago, Chicago's The Bright White have already begun creating a buzz in the Midwest and beyond. Combining soaring vocals with an exciting guitar driven attack, The Bright White have won comparisons to bands such as Oasis and The Replacements.
Their higly anticipated debut EP, Until Then, blends the energy and passion of The Bright White live experience with all the influences that inform the band; a dash of Revolver-era Beatles, a hint of mid-90s Brit pop, and a helping of classic American rock - all serving to create one of the most thrilling debuts of the year.
Having played in bands in bands in NYC and Nashville, and now finally settles in Chicago, lead singer Matthew Kayser lives and breathes rock and roll. His fiery intensity makes him the ultimate front man. Propelled by a dynamic rhythm section, the four-peice play with a raw intensity that has won them gigs at Chicago's most esteemed venues, including an EP release at the legendary Double Door, a sold out show at Schuba's, and Mercury Lounge and Fontana's in NYC.
The Bright White is the antidote to safe, generic rock. Honest, epic and smart, The Bright White is truly a band of and for the moment.
