Music journalism is full of hyperbole; new songs come along and they're brilliant and then they're forgotten. It is with that disclaimer that I feel able to say that LA-based Will Sturgeon known Brightener makes as near to perfect indie-pop music as I've heard of late. After all, Sturgeon's soundcloud page is bursting with incredible indie-pop songs, each saturated with bitter-sweet choruses and intelligent distinctive songwriting. There will always be great new music and only time will tell whether Brightener will be more than just 'an exciting new band' – here's hoping.
