One For Sorrow, Two For Joy

The New Album, Out Now

Brightly is the folk/electronica project of Charlie Gleason, sometimes with friends, sometimes alone. Inspired by artists like The Postal Service and Tycho, he combines skittering rhythms, endless delays and rolling crescendos to create sad songs you can probably dance to.

The new LP, One For Sorrow, Two For Joy, explores themes of balance—joy and sorrow, life and death, a tiny blue dot and an endless sprawling universe. It was written and recorded over a long winter in Reykjavík, Iceland and London, England, and was mixed and mastered in Melbourne, Australia by longtime collaborator and Grammy-nominated engineer Andrei Eremin.
