Duels is a British indie rock band from Leeds. They formally started playing together in 2005, but became quite popular quite recently after The Guardian described them as “one of Britains most ambitious groups”. The group released their first album in July 2006. “The Bright Lights And What I Should Have Learned” was very highly reviewed and named Album of the Week in The Sunday Times. “The Barbarians Move In” is the bands second album. Released February 14th 2008, Duels is giving it out free as a digital download on the albums first anniversary.
“The Barbarians Move In” received amazing reviews from some of the most prestigious British publications. The Q Magazine called it “…laudably sophisticated, laudably widescreen, Q Recommends” and the the NME said: “unequivocal brilliance…best comeback of 2008 so far – 8/10”.
