Biography

Melbourne, Australia (2004 – present)

Dukes of Windsor are an Australian Electro/Rock group formed in Melbourne, Australia in 2004. They are most noted for their single It’s A War, released in Australia in 2008 and in Europe in early 2010, as well as their song The Others, famously remixed by Australian dance act TV Rock. The original lineup consisted of Jack Weaving, Oscar Dawson, Scott Targett , Cory Blight and Bobby Manila. Joe Franklin replaced Bobby on bass in 2005, and drummer Mirra Seigerman replaced Cory in 2009.

Dukes of Windsor are a five-piece alternative/indie band. Although formed in Melbourne, Australia, they are currently based in Berlin, Germany. They fuse minimalist rhythms, punchy bass-lines, cascading guitar riffs, and glacial synths. Their music is angular and reductive, groovy and melodic, and has been termed the beautiful paradox of “robotic soul”.
The Dukes’ career began with the release of the EP Foxhunt in 2005. Debut album The Others followed in 2006, produced in Melbourne by expatriate American Jonathan Burnside (Faith No More, Nirvana). Extra production, mixing and mastering were provided by hardcore producers Pelle Henricsson and Eskil Lovstrom (Refused - The Shape Of Punk To Come, Poison the Well, Hell is for Heroes) from Tonteknik Studios in Umea, Sweden. After the release of the album, the band embarked on an intensive schedule of touring around Australia. After extensive national radio play, they were showcased as a ‘Next Crop Artist’ by national broadcaster Triple j in November 2006.
