about

Bright Brown Brooklyn, New York

Bright Brown is sonic cinema. Bittersweet layers and textures abound, and beautifully crafted songs exist at the core. Alex Nahas’ songwriting boldly chooses to sit “between the meager and the mundane” elevating the everyday. He generates a broad sonic palette on the rarely seen, Chapman Stick and along with Nick Smeraski on drums, they've wowed audiences with their explosive duo performances. ... more

Track Name: Tick Tock
And the fall and the winter / Another year / Tick tock
I can’t write / I can’t sing / I can’t move / I’m freezing
And the spring and the summer / Another year / Tick tock
I can’t love / It’s too hot / I can’t move / I’m melting

I sit spinning and stewing over the day ensuing or has it been years since I sat here brewing
From the EZ Chair I stare and dream as the screen dares me
To join the sunny stream on the other side

And the fall and the winter / Another year / Tick tock
I can’t write / I can’t sing / I can’t move / I’m freezing
And the spring and the summer / Another year / Tick tock
I can’t love / It’s too hot / I can’t move / I’m melting

When I sing I wanna hear bells ring / Waiting for my life to take wing

Want you to love me in all kinds of weather / Want you to keep me and give me a long tether
Want your sex through the worst and best we weather
The days crawl but the seasons fly by / I should embrace the change but every time I try
It just cycles me back to where I started

And the fall and the winter / Another year / Tick tock
I can’t write / I can’t sing / I can’t move / I’m freezing
And the spring and the summer / Another year / Tick tock
I can’t love / It’s too hot / I can’t move / I’m melting
Track Name: January Child
Breath in the low light / The sun is much better when it shares the sky
You can see the moon in the broad daylight / The world looks better for this January child

And how the chill distracts me in kind / Putting still thoughts in an ever spinning mind
And just to cease this dizziness / A moment of bliss for this January child

And how the air suspends your smile and tames the wild in this January child
Track Name: It'll Make You Dance
If I could get half a minute / If I could get half a glance
I’d sell you my soul and everything in it / It’s got a good beat it’ll make you dance

If I could have half your ear then I’d stand a quarter chance
And it will get me out of here / It’s got a good beat it’ll make you dance

It’s the next big feeling / The greatest thing since romance
A sound so big it will lift the ceiling / It’s got a good beat it’ll make you dance
Track Name: House Of Dedalus
It’s damp and spent like a Brooklyn basement / I feel half a man and half content
The rumble of hunger / The rumble of want / There are rumbles above of whole human love

But I’m not a monster / I’m a consequence / Blame it on mother’s folly
I’m a louse in the house of Dedalus

It’s feeding time in the labyrinth / You’re not a victim / You’re a consequence
Put me out of my misery or I will devour you / This is no way to live a life
Praying for the day that Theseus arrives

But I’m not a monster / I’m a consequence / Blame it on mother’s folly
I’m a louse in the house of Dedalus

I’m the snore in your basement that keeps you awake
I’m the social embarrassment that makes our house quake
I’m a winding labyrinth snake

But I’m not a monster / I’m a consequence / Blame it on mother’s folly
I’m a louse in the house of Dedalus
Track Name: Sloop
Your sloop sails you’re on the shore / Flat footed wanting more
You’re ill at ease in the gentle breeze that pushes her away
See how she cuts her sleek physique / It won’t bleed it’s too deep
You stand there and you wanna score as she sails away

You wanna take her with you / You want to bring her along
But you are hardly moving and she wants to move on

Your sloop sails you’re on the shore / Flat footed wanting more
You’re ill at ease in the gentle breeze that pushes her away
See how she cuts her sleek physique / It won’t bleed it’s too deep
You stand there and you wanna score as she sails away

She wonders what is with you as you point up to the sky
You tell her that you’re both blue as she begins to fly
And you are hardly moving and she wants to move on

Your sloop sails you’re on the shore / Flat footed wanting more
You’re ill at ease in the gentle breeze that pushes her away
See how she cuts her sleek physique / It won’t bleed it’s too deep
You stand there and you wanna score as she sails away

You want her to be with you but she has to be strong
When you tell her that you’re both blue yet you wanna get along
And you are hardly moving and she wants to move on
Track Name: One Step Too Many
Feel like an egg at the crest of a hill wanting to set a downhill record
Where many have gone / Humpty Jack and Jill
And many a shell lay shattered after one step too many

Feel like I’m part of a ballroom scene where the band plays like a skipping record
Amidst the tales and gowns of an elegant dream I try and dance like I wanna love you
Is it one step too many

How will the egg dance on it’s awkward trip / Is there music to keep it honest
If you’re keeping time there’s an extra skip
And as it gathers momentum is it one step too many

So here we are at this ballroom scene and the band’s playing like it’s trying to forget
Broken crowns on the heads of kings and queens but this is not a waltz yet
It’s one step too many
Track Name: Less Tunnel More Light
I wish you less tunnel more light / Less tunnel more light

For your troubled soul I wish you grassy knolls / For you to lose control on a downhill roll
I wish you soft landings in a mattress meadow

I wish you less tunnel more light / Less tunnel more light

For your weary view I wish you sunset hues to dazzle you and protect you
From the evening news / It’ll get to you

Don’t wanna alarm you / Just wanna keep them from harming you

And wish you less tunnel more light / Less tunnel more light
I wish you less tunnel more light / Less tunnel more light

I wish you light / For your troubled soul I wish you light / For your weary view I wish you light
Track Name: Wide
Open / Open wide / Share the light inside
