The West End Cultural Centre presents: Bright Righteous
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.
