Brightness - Dallas

Brightness - Dallas
“Wilted on a Murphy bed with 3:10 glowing Kubrick-red and Robert Tilton on TV”, so goes the stark opening line to ‘Dallas’, the heady new single from Newcastle singer-songwriter Brightness (Alex Knight).

Recorded in upstate New York with producer Sam Griffin Owens (Cass McCombs, Chris Cohen, Sam Evian), ‘Dallas’ is - by Knight’s description - “a song about being spiritually hungry…the volatility and fragility of being in that state.” Its slanting melody, baritone guitars and erratic squalls dunk you in this cloudy space for the bulk of its duration, then slowly lifts you out in its final phrases to the sound of rapturous falsetto and luminous French horn.

“I wrote ‘Dallas’ when I was living alone in my brothers garage.” says Knight. “It’s probably hard to tell, but I was listening to a lot of Springsteen at the time. I was inspired especially by his ‘Darkness On The Edge Of Town’ record…the themes and overall tone etc. I’d pretty much razed my life to the ground, and was intent on looking upwards…looking outwards.”
