Bright Channel has been described as inspiring and revelatory, dark and elegant, shimmering and roaring. One thing is for certain, Bright Channel's music defies categorization. This is a rock band with a wide variety of musical influences and a clear vision for the future. Since forming in June of 2002, this 3-piece has steadily grown a loyal fan base on the strength of their live appearances. Their signature sound consists largely of swirling, melodic guitars lapping against a wall of pounding rhythms. Encompassing the best of shoegazer, post-punk, indie rock, no-wave, brit pop and space rock, Bright Channel is forging ahead with a new sound that is highly stylized and unique. Self-Propelled is their second album, which was entirely written, recorded, engineered, produced, and released by the band: "kind of an experiment to see how much we could handle taking on ourselves," says the band. Well put, considering their debut was recorded by none other than Steve Albini.
