Emerging pop-punkers DOWNCAST set loose their captivating self-titled debut EP on Friday 11th January 2019. Prior to this, the band have released a new video for their stunning new single, I’m Sorry – https://youtu.be/RqMepW6DNqA .
Expressing emotive drive with infectious vocal lines, DOWNCAST wear their hearts on their sleeves. Pulling influence from everyone from heavyweights such as The Wonder Years and Alkaline Trio, to highly-rated UK stewards ROAM and Neck Deep, the band’s reach is notably diverse, and their sound is utterly enthralling.
DOWNCAST have only been in existence since the start of the year, however, the threesome have wasted no time perfecting their set and working diligently on their debut EP with esteemed producer, Ian Sadler (Anavae, ROAM). Lead Vocalist, Liam Edwards comments: “We wrote and demoed the EP in our bedrooms over the course of about five months. I wanted to write something honest…I hope that this EP will resonate with anyone who is going through a hard time and helps them to feel less alone. I’ve used putting my thoughts and feelings into songs as a way of coping with negative emotions for a while now; it gives them a long-term purpose. I feel that negative things in your life often reveal positive meanings over time. If the things I’ve written about never happened, these five songs wouldn’t exist today.”
DOWNCAST drop their debut EP this January, and it is certainly worth the wait. Expressing five slabs of truly engaging heartfelt melodic punk, this is a band that are destined to break out to a national audience. Big things lay ahead.
