DOWNRIGHT Short Info

Originally founded as “Clear: Factor“ in early 2013 Sebastian and Alexander (ex “Choked by an Alligator“) first staged with “Dimi“ (Vocals) and “Aggi“ (Bass). The music they played was more in the fields of Hardcore Punk. About a year later Dimi decided to leave the band. At the same time Sebastian and Alexander decided to part ways with Aggi as well because of musical differences.
But still they kept on going and stood to their new musical influences which were a lot calmer. It was just a few days after the guys started to look for new band members when they found Stefan. Also they did not have to wait long for a new bass player. Dino noticed the guys via Facebook and became part of the bands just a few days after Stefan joined. Both complimented the new style somewhere in between Alternative Rock, Post-Hardcore and 90’s Emo ideally. Now the four just missed a new shouter and found them within their own group. So Alexander became both, Drummer and Shouter of the band and gets backed by Sebastian every now and then. Now where the guys had a new line up and musical style they wanted to give the group a new name. DOWNRIGHT was born.
Downright means honesty and that is exactly what the four guys from the Ruhr area stand for. They do not try to be someone else not as persons nor when it comes to music. There is no room for trends or anything alike. They just make the music they want to. This goes as well for the lyrics which deal with experiences, fictional themes or social topics, it is always straight forward.
With this concept inherent they spent several months in the rehearsal room. Beside a hand full of small gigs the band worked steadily on their social media presence. Promo shoots, layouts and designs were just the small bit here. The main focus was on the demo which was recorded in November 2014 and got released about a month later together with the social media profiles. The demo contains three songs which mirror the range of the band. The mix of melodic parts, calm riffs combined with fast punk beats and atmospheric passages mark the style of Downright.
Even though the guys had already a lot of experience and contacts they needed a new pool of bands for their DIY shows which matched more with their current style. So came it that they set up great shows with bands like “Orbit the Earth” or “Akela”.
Downright works on a constant professional level and is very ambitioned and concentrated with their focus always on their music.
For 2015 the goals are settled high. Of course the guys want to play as many shows as possible and think about recording their debut album towards the end of the year 2014.
