Dawes Gig Feature In The Uncut Newsletter

Uncut newsletter This week’s Uncut newsletter is full of praise for ¬†Loose favourites, Dawes.

it becomes entirely clear what it was about them that would have appealed to [Robbie] Robertson. In the three or four numbers they’ve played so far, you can hear appealing echoes of The Band in the unfolding narratives of their songs, the funky country and R&B licks they play, and in the passionate vocal interplay between the Goldsmith brothers and Tay Strathairn. They’ve got their Little Feat chops together, too, and there are a couple of tunes where the guitars are pleasingly reminiscent of the prettier end of The Allman Brothers’ repertoire.

they’re well worth catching if they fetch up anywhere near you.
