Highly anticipated collection of singles previously released on the legendary English pop label Sarah Records. A trio of Alison Cousens, Keris Howard and Alex Sharkey, Brighter was a beloved band equally comfortable creating introspective and poignant songs (Inside Out, So You Said, Never Ever) and jangly pop hits (Does Love Last Forever, Poppy Day, I Don’t Think it Matters). The songs all possessed the signature Brighter elements: beautifully strummed guitars, gorgeous melodies, and heartfelt, intelligent lyrics. Between 1989 and 1992, the band released three brilliant 7" EPs ("Around the World in Eighty Days", "Noah’s Ark", and "Half-hearted") and one 10"/CDEP ("Disney") for Sarah which are collected here in their entirety. Long out of print and highly sought after, these 15 songs are available again (and for the first time on CD for the majority) on this beautiful collection. Brighter disbanded in 1993, leaving a devoted legion of fans heartbroken until band! members reemerged in recent pop outfits Harper Lee, Pinkie, Trembling Blue Stars and Fosca. Housed in a deluxe digipak with vintage Brighter photos, "Singles 1989-1992" is a document of what came before these distinguished bands and an essential release for any serious student of indiepop.
