The Defibulators have emerged as one of the most engaging live acts from the thriving roots scene in Brooklyn, NY melding, bluegrass rockabilly, dixieland, and punk into their own eclectic sound. Their shows are irresistibly infectious and rowdy (likened to watching "Hee-Haw on mescaline"), as they wield an arsenal of guitars, banjos, fiddles, and junkyard percussion, with relentless energy and rusty virtuosity. The DEFiBULATORs jump-start new life into vintage country music and deliver a unique sound that's anything but old timey.
"[Bug] and singer Erin Bru slip into harmonies that recall the storied Gram ParsonsEmmylou Harris duetsmoments of unvarnished beauty" - New York Magazine
"Substance and harmonies that recall the music that was played at the Grand Ole Opry in its heyday." My Old KY Blog
The Dwells have made a name for themselves in Boston, receiving accolades for their performance and musicianship at Berklee, and playing numerous showcases around the city. They have been described as, "One of the truly noteworthy new duos" (The Examiner) and "alt-folk at its best" (The Ruckus), which led independent Music News to name them in their in their top ten unsigned artists of 2012.
"The Dwells possess that unique quality that we all know when we see it and yet can't quite describe after the fact. It's the "it" dilemma. They certainly have "it" whatever that is; charisma, charm, mature songwriting, and stellar musicianship all factor in to the overall picture but it's the seamless harmonies that leave you breathless. To sing nearly every song in perfect harmony, a la The Everly Brothers, and to do it flawlessly, is a remarkable feat for such a young band. The way they pull it off without a stumble, a flam or a bad note is almost creepy. I love this band" - Billy Beard
