Austin, TX band Duncan Fellows have released “Like I Used To” and “Swallowing Grains”, two more singles from their upcoming album The Sadlands, coming out October 16. Duncan Fellows spoke about “Like I Used To” saying, “Like I Used To was inspired by that half-helpless, half-hopeful feeling that arises out of nothing like some sleeping giant, lifting its head to remind you that from pain comes change and from change, something better. Or at least, something better over time
To date, the band have released four songs from the upcoming full-length. “Car Song” and “Feeling Down.”Following the release of the new album, the band will launch a video game that they created themselves accessible via thesadlands.com. Duncan Fellows, who were spotlighted as an NPR Artist to Watch in 2019, have released three EPs —2013’s Twelve Months Older and 2015’s Marrow and 2019’s Eyelids Shut —while the band members were in college, the Duncan Fellows debut full-length Both Sides of the Ceiling dropped in 2017 and put the band on the map. Their single “Fresh Squeezed” has racked up over three million Spotify streams and the entire album was championed by local radio. The band has played festivals including Austin City Limits, Voodoo Festival, SXSW, Shaky Knees and toured with acts including Middle Kids, Whitney, Wilderado and The Drums.
