What goes up doesn’t necessarily have to come back down – not when it’s propelled by pure inertia on a trajectory towards the infinite.
Fusing fresh digital soundscapes with raw, unbridled rock sensibilities, Bright Righteous have forged a unique and otherworldly sonic coalescence – one with the potential to push the Winnipeg quintet to unexplored heights.
Having reached impressive peaks of success with different lineup iterations, the newly-cemented quintet of Jay Jensen, Kevin Hogg, Scott Beattie, Andrew Titley, and Troy Taylor adopted the Bright Righteous moniker to match their musical manifesto: be unconventional, uncompromising, and ultimately, unstoppable.
Their room-rocking hybrid of dance-ready rhythms and organic-but-urgent rock instrumentation borrows bits of EDM, alternative, prog rock, and even modern pop anthems. The execution, however, is that of a band at the apex of their collective abilities.
The urgency of some of the more upbeat and anthemic tracks is uninhibited, expelling pure power from their core. Meanwhile, the slow-burning, more ethereal material is spellbinding, with rich dreamscape dynamics that engulf the listener in interstellar euphoria.
Onstage, their unrestrained energy elevates the collective experience to something surreal. This isn’t a band that simply pushes play. instead, their performances forge a connection that blurs the lines between band and audience, spectacle and spectator.
With a unified artistic vision, unparalleled work ethic, and colossal signature sound with an overwhelming but inviting intensity, Bright Righteous is ready for the life-changing shows on massive stages. ready for their songs to be shouted back at them by the ever-growing masses.
Their sound is stellar, their inertia is unrelenting, and their potential is limitless. Bright Righteous are blazing into the uncharted abyss, and it’s a one-way ride. there is no coming back down.
