Duels are a four piece band from Leeds, England.
The band, which consists of core members Jim and Jon Foulger (guitar and vocals respectively), drummer James Kirkbright and bassist Jon Maher, create anthemic new-wave pop with sinister undercurrents to craft a unique, vibrant sound, while recalling legendary artists such as Robert Wyatt, David Bowie and Pulp along the way. Additional Duels members include Katherine Botterill on keyboards and backing vocals and violinist Lesley Turner.
Their first album, ‘The Bright Lights & What I Should Have Learned’ was released in August 2006 to widespread critical acclaim and after extensive touring and a split from Nude records, Duels commenced work on their second full-length release, the self-produced ‘The Barbarians Move In’. Recorded in a converted barn on the North Sea Coast and showcasing a darker, more organic sound, Jon Foulger suggested the album is about “nature fighting back”. It was digitally released via duelsmusic.com on Valentine’s Day 2008, with a UK physical release on This Is Fake DIY Records to follow on April 28th.
Duels have opened for Kaiser Chiefs and former Blur guitarist Graham Coxon, and have toured the UK and Europe with The Rakes, The Zutons, and The Kooks. The band played the Radio1/NME Stage at the Leeds/Reading Festivals and opened the main stage at T In The Park in 2006. The band are due to play the upcoming Camden Crawl in London, alongside their own dates.
