DNA: There’s a trend in pop for new artists to radically rename themselves. Was this the thinking behind Bright Light Bright Light? BLBL: I just think Rod Thomas sounds so boring [laughs]. When you create something there’s so much to play with – sound, imagery, video, creative – why not do something fun with the name as well? Really, if people see someone show up on a blog or charts or whatever, it’s easy to assume it’s a person with guitar or piano and potentially a little introverted. The aim for my music was to steer away from that. I thought a name would tie in all the production, writing, DJing, remixing and stylistics.

About DNA Magazine

Welcome to our Next Big Thing issue. Every day we’re bombarded with news of the “the latest”, “the newest”, “the most amazing next…” So we asked our contributors and correspondents to look to their speciality fields and focus on the next big things we’re really going to appreciate. For example, 3D porn is already here but fully interactive experiences are just around the corner. On stage, we’re looking forward to Bette Midler in Hello Dolly! and Pamela Rabe in The Testament Of Mary. It’s going to be a big year for gay content on film and television. Along with Moonlight, Call Me By Your Name and the Australian feature The Dream Children are going to make it an extraordinary year for gay film. On the health front, there are extraordinary developments in medical technology that are going to profoundly change lives, and the food we eat is no small part of it. Then, of course, there’s the world of fashion where change is fundamental (and fun). And let’s not forget the men and the models who are going to be heating up our pages, our news feeds and blowing up our Instagram accounts! We hope you like what we’ve put together. Enjoy the Next Big Things!
