Much acclaimed emotive punks downcast return with a thunderous new single and video, “Catharsis”

Hailing from Bristol and formed in the Spring of 2018, downcast carve out driven melodic bursts of infectious pop-punk laced with truly heart-wrenching lyrics and a poignant delivery. The much-revered quintet cite The Wonder Years, Casey, and Nothing, Nowhere, as influences, yet if you dig even deeper into the band’s layered sound, you’ll uncover a slew of nuances and undertones.

The tuneful heartbreakers are now ripe to kick on even further. The fivesome have recently recorded their breath-taking new single, Catharsis, with esteemed producer Ian Sadler (Roam, Gender Roles). Vocalist Liam Edwards remarks about the single: “‘Catharsis’ is about being in a relationship with a toxic person and not realising the severity of their abuse until you’ve left the situation. The line ‘I always wondered why the songs I love didn’t sound the same when I was with you’ refers to someone wearing you down to the point where you don’t even enjoy the things that used to make you happy.” downcast will play a series of shows this Summer and are set to announce details of further singles very soon. Stay tuned to their socials for updates.
