Downend are excited for their first gig in Melbourne, coinciding with the release of their debut album, ‘Find A Home’.
The formation of downend sees this duo move away from standard jazz repertoire and into the unknown. Conor McDonald and Kayleigh Pincott have been making music in the formation of downend for the better half of a decade, inspired by artists such as Bjork, Bon Iver and Margaret Glaspy. The duo has spent their time writing and rehearsing original music, which utilises effects, improvisation and looping and have recently recorded their 8 track debut album with local Caleb Colledge from MADE NOW MUSIC
