The luridly lit room at 229 last night, was curiously full of loved-up couples and it's not even Spring – but Herman Dune's music and personal charm quickly made it clear what attracted us all to their headline slot at the Fistful of Fandango festival.

Herman Dune have been around for an astonishingly long time (nearly 10 years), yet have stayed at a level where they still perform to pretty small audiences. This seems an act by choice, as tonight, everyone was enamored. I was almost brand-new to the folky charms of the band, consisting of two emaciated, vegetarian brothers from Sweden, but the setlist was populated with what could be called their greatest hits. The wistful lovers' prayer “My Home is Nowhere Without You” managed to feel sweet and heartfelt despite the familiar theme of being far away from the object of one's affection.
