Hey, we’re Bright & Dark
Hailing from the heart of Downtown Plymouth, MA, Bright & Dark is a new original band formed by two friends who first played music together when they were 17. Mike Mazurkiewicz and Katlyn “Kat” Evans met during their senior year of high school and have kicked around the idea of forming an original rock band inspired by the likes of Paramore, PVRIS, and Circa Survive for almost ten years. While in the audience of a show in March 2019 put on by South Shore bands “The Quins” and “Bruvs”, they made a pact to stop dragging their feet and finally start the band that was shortly thereafter named Bright & Dark. After recording drums on the band’s first EP and joining for a music video, Alex Kouvaris joined the band, bringing his drumming and vocals to the mix.
The name of the band was inspired by their combined writing style, as they have songs in dark keys with uplifting lyrics, songs in uplifting keys with dark/deep lyrics, and some that are a mix of both. Their writing is inspired by raw life experiences, societal stress and honesty. They refuse to limit their musical explorations to a certain genre, but they feel their music touches on Pop Rock, Alternative Rock, Pop Punk & more.
The band’s primary goal is to play original shows once they add a fourth member on bass, but they also plan to arrange for cover shows to enable them to play more venues, events and even weddings.
