Semi-Automatic

Derived from a Rage Against the Machine-type mold, Downshift shouts out over grinding and distorted electric guitars. Above the simple bass lines, the lyrics bounce off each chord and fly in the opposite direction. The use of simplicity and repetition only results in a lack of variation in their six songs.

Downshift is made up of four guys; the lead singer wishes to be known as "anonymous." Perhaps he doesn’t want to be held accountable for such unoriginal vocals and musical style? Downshift seriously lacks harmony. If they’re enjoying their music, they just might be the only ones.
