"Bold and beautifully constructed, the full record is an often playful take on guitar-pop, each track swaying between glimmering guitar lines and a lead voice that instantly draws you in to their world, all contagious energy and resolute, radiant bursts of noise that take these glowing tracks in to altogether brighter realms."

Fresh Squeezed PR
Austin-based indie rock band Duncan Fellows drops a music video for their first single, 'Fresh Squeezed,' lifted from their debut album Both Sides of the Ceiling, which will see its release this August 25th.
The video, with its acid-drenched trip through time, takes humorous jabs at the bands real-life living situation. The Fellows use butter-crunch guitars and subtle 80's synth textures throughout the track, which bounces around effortlessly and lands right where it's supposed to.
On the sweltering, quiet corner of Duncan Lane there stood a wide one-story house with six bedrooms and fourteen inhabitants. During the summer of 2012 the house's AC system failed, leaving the residents languid and dazed. The landlord was of disconnected affect and refused to repair the life-giving rotating fan... thus, great strife befell the house. Roaches began an invasion of the east wing, advancing at great speed to the kitchen trash. It was here that Colin Harman and Cullen Trevino first met and began to write songs. Not long after, the band Duncan Fellows formed.
After independently releasing two EPs, Twelve Months Older (2013) and Marrow (2015), the Fellows hit the road with Houndmouth through the southeast and with Joseph on a run of sold out dates along the west coast. Eager to release new music, DF went into the studio in early 2017 to record their debut LP Both Sides of the Ceiling, resulting in a multidimensional shift both sonically and personally for the band.
The release of Both Sides of the Ceiling in August 2017 revealed a fresh upbeat sound that catapulted them to the forefront of the Austin indie music scene. Rooted in catchy riffs and candid harmonies, their newfound sound has seen airplay on hometown favorite KUTX as well as Spotify’s Feel Good Indie Rock playlist with nearly a million followers. Fan favorite and lead single "Fresh Squeezed" packed a punch on streaming platforms garnering half a million plays, showcasing the band's versatility from contemplative to tongue-in-cheek lyricism. With their effortlessly charismatic stage presence and high energy sets, the band recently drew crowds to a string of sold out shows in the fall. Riding off of the success of Both Sides of the Ceiling, Duncan Fellows plans to tour and work on new music in 2018.
Made by humans for humans. Stay updated for songs and breakfast reviews. Love, DF.
