Dutch Uncles are an indie band from Manchester. They are known for their use of atypical time signatures within a pop context.[1] Their influences includes several bands such as The Smiths, King Crimson, Steve Reich, XTC and Talking Heads.



Originally from Marple, the band started playing together in college. The band became Dutch Uncles in April 2008. In early 2009, the band released an album in Germany with Tapete Records, a German label, recorded at Clouds Hill Studios in Hamburg.

The band returned in 2010 with their UK debut single "The Ink", released through the independent record label Love & Disaster on the 31 May 2010. Soon after, the band signed to London label Memphis Industries and released the single "Fragrant" on 1 November 2010. The bands UK debut album entitled 'Cadenza' was released on April 25, 2011. The band toured the UK throughout 2011 including appearances at Reading and Leeds Festivals and stage headline slots at Bestival and Latitude, followed by a European and UK support tour with Wild Beasts.
