When The Dunwell Brothers Band launched their mini album at The Wardrobe in Leeds on Saturday night were they trying to tell us all something by starting with Goodnight My City?

Could this have been something of a swansong before the lads make it big?

The Leeds venue was packed and although we had a superb offering from the quirky Maltese songstress Carrie Haber and an entertaining set from former Iron Maiden and Cutting Crew member Tony Moore it was the Leeds band everyone had pitched up to see as they launched their seven-track EP.

Family, friends and band supporters were out in force and enjoyed a great party atmosphere as the lads whipped through their album numbers, some new songs and covers Hide and Seek and Bullet Proof – two numbers on which they have really put their mark.

Of course for months now band supporters have felt the lads were on the verge of great things and the vibrancy and musical talent of the whole band was showcased to great effect.

This band recently played some big gigs, such as the Hop Farm Festival with the likes of Bob Dylan this summer, but they certainly looked a little nervous in front of this expectant crowd.

The band has earned itself a 40-date UK tour which kicks off in November playing at Caffe Nero venues from London to Edinburgh, Belfast to Leeds.

The Dunwells – brothers David and Joseph Dunwell on guitar and vocals, from Pudsey, drummer Jonny Lamb from Yeadon, bass player Lee Dawson from Brighouse and guitar virtuoso Dave Hanson from Pudsey – never fail to entertain with their superb voices and great musical talent and their live performances never fail to thrill.

The band kicked off the preview with Goodnight My City and followed up with EP numbers Dance With Me, the magnificent Oh Lord, the upbeat Feel Like I’m Running, Saving Grace, I Want To Be and the signature song of the band Elizabeth. They threw in a couple of new songs and although most of the Dunwells’ work these days is self-penned, their live performances feature two outstanding covers.

Imogen Heap’s Hide and Seek has a great interpretation and most who have heard it feel it is better than the original and that is no detriment to Imogen Heap, more a tribute to what this band have done with it. Ever ones to push the musical boundaries, their cover of Bullet Proof is a real mind blower.

So, another satisfied audience but one that probably left feeling a little bit as if things will never be the same for them again but will be decidedly better for the band. Perhaps in the future not so many intimate local venues but more big festivals and big stage venues.

All who attended the launch received a special limited edition of the EP, which I am sure they will treasure.

The EP is now on sale on line through Asda and Zavvi and can also be bought at Crash Records in Leeds.
