The best kept secret in music

The transformation of Debs Warren from acoustic chanteuse to full-on rock chick is complete. And to show it off this new single boasts the best chorus the singer-songwriter has penned to date. It takes a while to get going but once it does, "Angel" contains a soaring melody backed by floating harmonies and chugging guitars. The chug is turned up to 11 for follow-up track, "The Chase", co-written with guitarist Will Hessey. Showing that the host of Suffolk Songwriters has not forgotten her roots, Debs reverts to her trusty acoustic guitar for the third song, the lilting, "I Don't Have The Time Anymore". Hessey brings the proceedings to a close and steps up to the mic for his own beguiling composition, "Storyteller". The DWB have truly set out their stall with this collection of songs: you should take a closer look.

After two well-received albums, Debs Warren had decided on an EP for her latest release. The four track CD was unveiled at The Milestone last month. The title track "Angel" is the strongest track Debs has written so far. It has all the right ingredients - a great hook, polished playing and a bright production. This really sets the DWB stall our from the word go and if Debs can maintain this standard of song writing then it won't be long before she finds a publisher. Guitarist Will Hessey gets in on the song writing act too as he did on the "Captiv8" album. This time it's a track called "Storyteller". The "Angel" EP featured midway through an impressive launch night set at The Milestone and afterwards several people bought a copy on the strength of what they'd just heard. The CD is an absolute snip at £1.99 and a visit to www.dwbonline.co.uk will tell you how to get hold of a copy. The new DWB drummer John Bicknell has settled into his role very quickly. He's the sort of drummer I like listening to. He knows what he's there for and doesn't demand attention. Good drummers are like good soccer referees - they just keep things moving without taking over.

Some nicely done artwork from Zoe Waller adorns the front of this EP from DWB, which is a nice, chilled, straight forward change to all the metal and oddball music I've been reviewing recently.

"Angel" is a non offensive, well sung and tightly played song reminding of a combination between Fairground Attraction and Madder Rose. A mix of bluesy rock and indie janglings with mellow female tones laid over the top.

"The chase" is a little darker and has a more riffier feel, and there are some cool little chord progressions as well, making me think of Sensefield from the 'Building' album especiially, and for definite their offshoot band Whirlpool from a few years ago.

Two more pretty solid songs in the shape of "I don't have the time anymore" and "Storyteller" round us off here, and the main noticeable thing about DWB, whether you will like their matured chilled rock sounds or not, is that they are good song writers with some nice subtle touches, and most certainly a very professional band.

Nice work.
