Can't see controls when using universal them and phone has light theme

From another thread ( I was able to apply the universal theme to the control. However I noticed that when the phone is using a light theme, it's very hard to see the UI elements (play button, FF, REW, volume etc.). The controls are black and the background is a very dark black which makes it near impossible to see. Seems to only affect when phone has light theme, if user changes to dark theme you can see the UI controls.

Is this a known issue and is there any workaround?
