I meet pop singer Bright Light, Bright Light on a Sunday afternoon in Shoreditch’s trendy Hoi Polloi restaurant. The gold-tinged room is full, as a classical quartet cover Britney’s Toxic. A trendy waiter wearing trendy glasses makes a beeline for Bright Light, who’s in his early thirties, and wearing faded denim jacket and striped shirt, and sporting a neatly trimmed beard.

Bright Light — who’s real name is Rod Thomas — is quietly spoken and demure in person, with big liquid brown eyes. In a a gentle Welsh lilt, he tells me about himself. “I moved to London in 2004,” he says. “I’ve always written music, played different instruments. I was a busker on the London Underground for 2½ years. I also used to work for a record label. I’m a music geek, I love Eighties and Nineties pop and a lot of my music references come from films. That’s about all.”
