"Alternate Loving" Video Premiere/2018 Wrap
We're stoked to share yet another new music video with y'all! This one is for "Alternate Loving" off our recent EP, Missing Something, premiered by the exquisite folks at OVRLD. Watch below:
OVRLD Presents: Exclusive Video Premiere: Bright Light Social Hour "Missing Something"
The video was directed by the incomparable Christian Bowman, with editing, visual synthesis and effects done by our own Joseph Mirasole. It was filmed over two freezing rainy days around Austin and features much micro-goth gallivanting and aquatic psychonautics. We hope you enjoy!
Also! Our last video, Missing Something, has recently won Best Music Video at the Top Indie Film Awards and been nominated for the Austin Music Video Festival, the Berlin Music Video Awards and the Bizarre Art Film Festival in Alicante, Spain! Watch Missing Something HERE.
And finally, we just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for supporting us in another amazing year! 2018 was a wild one for us. A couple of quick highlights include:
