A brand new offering of intelligent synth-pop, The Brilliant Things are Marie Junior and Greg French.
Both in their twenties, they independently experienced various aspects of the music industry. Greg, a multi-instrumentalist, has worked as both house and assistant engineers in many top international studios, working with artists such as The Corrs, Van Morrison, Mutt Lang and Brian Eno.
Marie has grown up in the music environment, her father being a musician and band manager, who worked with many illustrious groups. Marie previously embarked on a solo career under the name Sweet T, gaining an Irish Charts Top 40 placing with her take on The Mekans I Love a Millionarie.
The Brilliant Things are currently working on their debut album , which is set to raise the bar in contmeporary pop music with the bands infectious pop melodies and foot-to-the-floor electronica taking centre stage in what is set to be a huge year for the band.
Take the name as a statement of intent, watch them go!
The Brilliant Things write their own often cheekily cynical material, and are currently fashioning the songs for their first album release under the guidance of Corrs producer Olle Romo.
Tune in again tomorrow!!!
