Leeds-based folk-rock outfit the Dunwells feature a pair of siblings -- Joseph (vocals, guitar) and David Dunwell (vocal, piano, banjo, guitar) -- along with a pair of their school friends: Rob Clayton on bass and Adam Taylor on drums.
Formed in 2009, the band specialize in lush four-part vocal harmonies and employ a heady mix of electric and acoustic instrumentation, drawing comparisons to Mumford & Sons
and Fleet Foxes
plus legends like the Eagles
and Crosby, Stills & Nash
. The Dunwells released their debut album, Blind Sighted Faith, through the Playing in Traffic
label in February 2012. Resequenced, retitled, and with some alternate versions and remixes, the album was released in the U.K. in 2013 as Follow the Road. The following year, the group delivered the EP Show Me Emotion. In 2015, the Dunwells returned with another EP, the four-song Lucky Ones, which featured production from the band along with James Flannigan. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
