We are Full Fat Light Bulb a 5 piece Rock band from Brighton, injecting funk into the face of rock music like botox. Our influences range from a whole span of different artists and genres but we'd say we sound most like Lenny Kravitz, Maroon 5 and Jane's Addiction. Our Funk bass lines are hugely influenced by Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Michael Jackson's bassist Louis Johnson.

There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest? We have two vocalists in the band that create some intricate harmonies and noticeable funk slap-bass lines.

What’s your back-story? Our music tries to take an alternative perspective on the classic love song, telling real stories that we've experienced in relationships - good and bad - rather than pushing the facade of the perfect relationship. We wanted to say something real and put some feel-good music behind it that a crowd can groove to.

What are you working on at the moment? We have a single release in April followed by our debut EP this year. Expect to hear music that is catchy, soulful and funk feel-good, but also anger-inducing riffs and heavy drum beats.

Full Fat Light Bulb are a vibrant rock band with soul/ funk vibes. In a parallel universe, if Paolo Nutini made a baby with Led Zep and played the Chillis and James Brown all through the pregnancy, Full Fat Light Bulb would be that child. "It is rare to see bands perform live with such laid back precision." - Vault52, Ash Edmonds

"A fusion of Funk/Rock and Pop, Full Fat Light Bulb’s vocalist Tom Craggs-Wards switches between low soulful tones and stratospheric James Brown like screams. Soaring harmonies between the two vocalists are the glue that bound their catchy top lines together. Funky slap bass lines are collaborated in a groove infused synergy alongside pop inspired keys, high energy guitar riffs and blues rock influenced solos all supported by drummer Charles Backer's relentless beats."
