DMA'S reveal new single 'Dawning'


It’s been a little while between drinks but DMA’S have returned with their new single ‘Dawning’. Premiering on triple j, ‘Dawning’ is the first new music from the trio since their ARIA-nominated, critically acclaimed debut LP Hills End was presented to the world in March 2016. The band are also set to play two very special shows in Sydney and Melbourne in early November.  

‘Dawning’ proves the wait has been worth it; a tune that illustrates the band’s much-loved talent for writing anthemic pop songs and offers lyrics and melodies that clash stylistically for the purpose of creating a wider meaning to the music.
“We feel like ‘Dawning’ gives people the opportunity to decide what the song means to them,” vocalist Tommy O’Dell explains. “While the message of the song is quite dark, we also wanted create a piece of music that sounds uplifting and hopeful.”
Working with producer Kim Moyes (The Presets), ‘Dawning’ was mostly recorded at DMA’S studio above the Lady Hampshire Hotel in Camperdown (Sydney), with drums tracked at The Grove in Somersby, NSW. Spreading the recording process out allowed DMA’S the space to take their time creatively, resulting in a single that is full of charm and emotion, and yet another stylistic leap forward for the Sydney locals.  
Since the release of their debut LP Hills End in March 2016, DMA’S have been adorned with an abundance of praise from around the world, as critics and fans alike are drawn to their undeniably recognisable brand of guitar-driven pop anthems. The band’s debut single ‘Delete’ achieved gold status in Australia (35,000+ sales) in February 2017, following on from their amazing cover of Cher’s ‘Believe’ performed for triple j’s Like A Version amassing over 4million views on YouTube, and charting at #6 in the Hottest 100 – the highest charting ‘Like A Version’ cover of all time.
Between stints in the studio, the band have toured non-stop throughout the world playing sold out headline shows across the UK and Europe and billings on some of the world’s biggest festivals including Coachella, Reading & Leeds, Fuji Rock, a surprise set at Glastonbury in 2016 and Splendour in the Grass and Laneway Festival on home soil.

DMA's are also performing two shows in New Zealand this month! 


Thursday October 19th: San Fran, Wellington 

Friday October 20th: The Tuning Fork, Auckland
