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.
