"Downer" / Bio

We are Hungry.

A Review from The Musical Junkie:
"Downer"

This band from Houston, Texas has nailed the lost art of 90's alternative rock and sprinkled it with a littler flavor of classic rock. Ricky Dee brings brings out a noisy tone from his guitar and sings in a mixture of their influences. Noe Kimes has excellent fills pouring out of his bass which many bassists don't succeed in. Antwon Thrash brings a thrash approach to his drums and he is good at it. On their Soundcloud account there's a drum solo entitled "Drunk Zolo." Listen to it to understand how destructive the drummer really is. "Brief Conclusions" has a strong "Velvet Underground" influence especially in the laid back vocal melody sung in the style of Lou Reed. "Wake Up" is a noisy Mudhoney inspired jam. The song is layered completely with a loud fuzzy bass. "Kocaine" starts with a subtle bass line and then it's thrown into a fast current of a wild river. There's a solo that might melt your ears. "That Day Long" is a really catchy 80's punk rock like gem. The vocals are sung in a "Hendrix" manner. The bassist really shines on this track. "Downer" has found a way to pay tribute to their influence and make original music at the same time. They don't fall pray into sounding like a copycat band. If you feel nostalgic of the rock music of the 90's this is the band to check out. ~The Musical Junkie~
