Right on Dynamite is an indie rock band from Brooklyn, NY, and has been based in the Greenpoint section since their inception in 2006. Their lineup consists of guitarist and main vocalist Daniel Murphy, Nicholas Cirillo on bass and vocals and Jon Molina on drums. While touring with Frightened Rabbit in 2009 New York Magazine covered the band calling them "the Human Sexual Behavior of New York rock, perfectly adolescent yet surprisingly deep."
The Brooklyn-based trio consists of high school friends and their brand of rock has drawn comparisons to Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth and even Weezer and The Cribs. They have received the attention of many important people, including the likes of Spin, NME, Blackbook, NY Mag, Time Out and many other publications all giving their attention. The band has also toured the U.S. with Frightened Rabbit and The Hold Steady at those bands' request.
Right on Dynamite's song Mantra for the Madness was featured in the Episode Midnight Clear on the ABC Family show Greek.
Their debut full-length is slated for a Fall 2011 release and was mixed by John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth, Kurt Vile). Right on Dynamite were last seen in the music video for Frightened Rabbit's song "The Woodpile."
