New Music – Lollapalooza Edition: The Dunwells

30 Jul

So this week it’s all about Lollapalooza on DoYouHearTheMusic.com. Most everyone is familiar with a lot of the acts performing this weekend so I’m going to throw some info out there on some artists and bands you may not be up to speed on.  Today’s group is actually a band I cannot wait to see, one of the must see shows for me.

Two words: The Dunwells

Who? Two brothers, two cousins and one more mate from Leeds, England.

What?  A five piece band destined to make it across the pond in America.  Check out their debut album, Blind Sided Faith.

Why you should listen?  Their indie-folk sound is full of beautiful harmonies any music fan will love – plus they add a little slice of Americana to their music.

A reason you’ll be excited?  These boys are now on a mini US Tour so get out and see them at a venue near you.

Why I’m excited: These guys just bring it and I can’t wait to see them perform live.  From their folk to blues and rock to soul, they are all over the place but in a unique way that blends together perfectly.

If you like: Mumford & Sons

Final thoughts: At Lollapalooza these guys have to compete in the same time slot as Alabama Shakes, The Temper Trap, fun. and B.o.B – how’s that for being relative nobody’s right now? I’ve seen every act but The Dunwells and I cannot wait to see them rock the BMI Stage this weekend.  I promise that for anyone opting to check these guys out, you will be thankful and have one heck of a story to tell when they break it big.

My recommendation, catch the top half of Alabama Shakes and make your way to The Dunwells.

Saturday, August 4, 4:30-5:10 p.m.
