The music of Duncan Fellows explores multiple vibes, feelings, tempos, and perspectives-and often in the same song. With the new EP Eyelids Shut, the five-piece from Austin explores that dynamic balance while concurrently toeing a similar line in their own lives. Following the release of two EPs, the Duncan Fellows debut full-length Both Sides of the Ceiling dropped in 2017 and put the band firmly on the map. Featuring the good-time earworm of a single "Fresh Squeezed" and an entire album's worth of upbeat rhythms, head-nodding riffs, and playful, pleasant harmonies, the record was championed by local radio, leading to a bevy of Spotify streams.
Audiences fell in love with the Fellows' passionate approach and charismatic energy, flocking to see them onstage in action with acts like Houndmouth, Middle Kids, and Whitney, as well as at slots playing festivals like Austin City Limits and SXSW. But while the band embrace their reputation as a fun-loving band of buddies making feel-good indie jams, they also acknowledge that this perception only represents one side of their coin.
In all they do, Duncan Fellows strive to be honest in their music and as people, leaving positive experiences in their wake while expressing themselves and, yes, having a good time. Driven to evolve and grow as artists while never taking themselves too seriously, their sense of adventure and commitment to their craft is sure to serve their spirit well for the long, long haul.
