THE DUNWELLS + ALEX OHM
£10adv • Ages 18+
— There may only be two members with the same surname, but The Dunwells
are very much a band of brothers. Consisting of two siblings, the hardworking duo from Leeds released their long awaited EP, Colour My Mind, in December 2017. The single from that EP (by the same name) was released in October closely followed by Diamonds later the same month.
Indeed, that tenacity and spirit have brought the band members a long way since their school days. Joe Dunwell and his elder brother Dave grew up in a musical household and fondly recall flipping through their dad’s Bob Dylan and Beatles records, as well as hearing their mum singing along to Motown. Bassist Rob Clayton has been Dave’s best friend since childhood—in fact it was the Dunwell brothers’ dad who taught Rob how to play bass.
— Alex Ohm
’s alternative, cinematic symphonies reflect the wide range of influences that inspire his work and come together to create his unique sound. Midlands based songsmith, Ohm has become a renowned name on the local music scene and beginning to make a name for himself far and wide. With a number of sold out shows already under his belt, Alex has also opened shows for the likes of Ian Brown, The Charlatans, Ocean Colour Scene and Peter Doherty to name a few as well as touring worldwide.
Debut EP 'At first a drop, then a flood' was released in May 2017 to huge praise from radio and press alike. ‘Through the storm’ was taken from that EP and released as a single in October as well becoming the soundtrack for the John Lewis promotional video for their Birmingham flag ship store. January 2018 saw Ohm release ‘Retreat’ into the world exhibiting a different side to Alex’s song writing; fusing indie, hip hop, and classical influences together seamlessly. Ohm launched the single with a sold out Birmingham show as well as dates in London and the iconic Rough Trade Records store in Nottingham in association with BBC Introducing and Y Not Festival.
