Amoeba Review

07/07/2014

If Erasure’s Andy Bell was born a millennial, he might have sounded like Bright Light Bright Light. Rod Thomas’ project can be described as disco-folk—Thomas first worked as a folk artist, busking and recording demos until working with the right producers to find his sound—so his second album, Life Is Easy, sounds like a nu-disco record with a folk core. Songs like “There Are No Miracles” hearken back to a time when danceable pop songs had heart, as Thomas sings about hard life lessons over dazzling production. On album highlight “I Wish We Were Leaving,” Thomas gets to work with musical hero Elton John (with whom he’s toured), singing with an invigorated John and crafting a soothing New Age-inspired pop tune. And just when Life Is Easy is in danger of feeling a bit sleepy, Thomas drops “An Open Heart” into the mix, a booming, irresistible synth-popper, and the house-inspired “Good Luck,” successfully bridging the gap between the ’80s pop that has informed Thomas’ sound and modern, radio-ready dance music. On Life Is Easy, Thomas creates dynamic, modern pop with real feeling that somehow sounds effortless.
