DMA’S have today released a new video for single ‘Dawning’, available now, ahead of their upcoming UK tour dates.The video was shot in Sydney by Spike Vincent and captures the essence of DMA’S in their hometown of Sydney.
DMA’S return to the UK this winter as main support for The Kooks arena tour and have also added their own headline shows at London’s Heaven (SOLD OUT) on Wednesday 22nd November & Motherwell’s Centre on Wednesday 29th November (full dates below).
‘Dawning’ sees DMA’S make a strong return with a tune that illustrates the band’s much-loved talent for anthemic pop music and offers lyrics and melody that clash stylistically for the purpose of creating a wider meaning to the music. Vocalist Tommy O’Dell explains; “We’re giving people the opportunity to decide what the song means to them… we wanted the song to convey a dark message but at the same time create a piece of music that sounds uplifting & hopeful.”
Debut Album ‘Hills End’ was released in 2016 via Infectious records to wide critical acclaim. Singles ‘Lay Down’, ‘In the Moment' and ‘Delete’ caught the attention of the British media including a Radio One A-List addition, support from Radio X, 6 Music and ‘Record of The World’ from Zane Lowe (Beats Radio). ‘Delete’ went Gold in Australia and their cover of the classic noughties Cher hit ‘Believe’ also went viral last year.
O’Dell’s emotional lyrics are resonating with a fanbase that is going from strength to strength, cementing a reputation of a live band not to be missed.
DMA’S return to the UK for a handful of headline shows around their festival appearances at KENDAL CALLING, SECRET GARDEN PARTY and Y NOT.
