The sound that machines make

I’ve been really enjoying the band Duels this week. They’re from Leeds, there are five of them, and they’ve just put out their debut album, “The Bright Lights and What I Should Have Learned” in the UK. Apparently, they were at SXSW earlier this year, but I’ve only just heard of them recently, possibly because I’m completely uncool. They’ve got that very British vibe about them – along with iLiKETRAiNS and My Latest Novel they write songs that are big enough to fill large rooms. It’s epic stuff, I was going to use the word grandiose but that’s a bit lame, innit?

You can hear some tracks on their myspace page, including The Slow Build, which appropriately enough builds very slowly. I like it very much. Further, here’s a song hosted on the SXSW website. Enjoy!

I'm slightly shocked that you haven't sent me their stuff yet, however after hearing that one song, i really like them.

Go figure, you found me another song that i'll put on repeat.
