Brigt has created his own world for his music to exist in.
Brigt has created his own world for his music to exist in. Like a lost soundtrack from the eras of classic luxury pop, with a touch of slick contemporary indie production, and some self-aware playfulness. The Oslo-based 21-year-old began to find his sound a couple of years ago, after decided to ditch the computer as a main writing tool. “I had been just producing for a long time. Just making little things, beats and so forth. And I listened to The Beatles after not having really listened to them for about three or four years. And I realised that's where it's at, I had to play instruments and sing and write songs, just like them. I couldn't do anything like that electronically. It's impossible to make a song really swing with just a computer. It'll be more of the machine in it than yourself”. Having found his sound, Brigt set about writing songs, and quickly amassed a pretty solid catalogue of material. Taken all together, Brigt’s songs sound like a lost soundtrack from the older eras of cinema, classical luxury pop music, freshened up and brought into the modern era with a little touch of slicker, contemporary production and some self-aware playfulness. As Brigt elaborates: “It's got a beat and it's got melody and I like to have a warm kind of sound to it usually. I want my music to sound alive, which isn't too easy when there's no one else to play with you know. I like to have a nice funky groove a lot of the time, so maybe that's inspired by some disco records or something. Most of them are love songs, but I like all kinds of different subjects. Outlaws, crime and punishment. Different professions like doctors and lawyers, organic food, objects, condiments, textiles, inventions etc”.
