Rylan, Rax, Alex and Jack from The DuBarrys have turned away from the path of electro-pop many indie bands have been heading towards, instead focusing on some quintessentially British sounds we’ve all been quietly missing – classic indie guitar music. No pretences, no gimmicks, just good music and from a super likeable group of guys from just down the road in pretty old Brighton.
Travelling a little further afield than their hometown, in their mood board you see the guys travel across the country, rehearsing, relaxing and enjoying band life. It’s hard not to love the mix of cheeky smiles we get in this exclusive snapshot of their day to day lives: losing teeth, rehearsals, smiles, smoke machines, hanging out with Carl Barat and more!
We write all our demos in our flat in Brighton. We occasionally perform the odd cover… “Enter Sandman, ready… 1 2 3 4”
We did an acoustic session for Vevo in Berlin. It involved long chats about how good Peep Show is and a smoke machine that just wouldn’t stop!
Alex and Rax performing two tracks from our Debut EP for a local radio station. We love nothing more than hearing our tracks on the radio!
Heading home after a Clockwork Owl Session. Dylan had a great time…
An absolute pleasure recording over at KONK Studios in London. A highlight for us was Dylan biting into his baguette and loosing his tooth

Here is Rax behind the desk. Studio time is serious time!
We try and get in as many rehearsals as possible, especially when we have a string of shows coming up. The bus ride home isn’t always as fun.
Carl Barat came down to catch our set at a local show in Brighton!
Sound checking at The Old Market, Brighton. One of our shows of last year at one of our favourite venues
Enjoying the sun after playing Boomerang Festival 2015.
There’s A LOT of waiting around when you’re in a band. We usually try and keep busy one way or another.
