DMA’S have unveiled their new single, DAWNING, to be released on 2 December around their forthcoming UK tour dates. DMA’S return to the UK this winter as main support on THE KOOKS arena tour and have added their own headline shows at London Heaven and Motherwell Centre.
DAWNING sees DMA’S make a strong return with a tune that illustrates the band’s much-loved talent for songwriting and offers lyrics and a melody that clash stylistically for the purpose of creating wider meanings to the music. Vocalist TOMMY O’DELL explains: “We’re giving the 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 and hopeful”.
The band’s debut album, HILLS END, was released in 2016 via Infectious Music to wide critical acclaim. The singles LAY DOWN, IN THE MOMENT and DELETE caught the attention of the British media including a Radio One A-list, support from Radio X and BBC6 Music, and a Record of The World from Zane Lowe on Beats Radio. DELETE went Gold in Australia, and their cover of the classic Cher hit, BELIEVE, went viral earlier this year and has so far amassed over 4 million views on You Tube alone.
O’Dell’s emotional lyrics are resonating with a fan base that continues to go from strength to strength, cementing a reputation of a live band not be missed.
DMA’S are currently working on their second album, due to be released in 2018.
