These California kids have been out in the sun for too long, and they've got the bright light fever as a result. Symptoms include a fondness for dark rock songs, a reliance on gritty guitars, and occasional neck pain - although that last malady is just a byproduct of the headbanging that usually accompanies these down 'n' dirty rock songs.
So the sickly guys in Bright Light Fever might not be feeling too well, but they definitely sound good. "Deeper Blue" is the major highlight here, with its minor-key harmonies and rhythmic change-ups. The bass anchors the song during one verse, only to be replaced by a dance-worthy guitar riff during the next. Then the band launches into a freewheeling, balls-to-the-wall freakout to end the tune. If you're tired of the sugary, sun-kissed pop that's been emanating from the west coast since the '50s, Bright Light Fever might be just what the doctor ordered.
