Australian alt-rock group DMA’S have released the second single from their forthcoming debut LP, entitled ‘Too Soon‘. The group, who have already achieved international acclaim playing at some of the world’s most prestigious festivals including Lollapalooza, Reading & Leeds and the Governor’s Ball, are also set to appear at Coachella in April this year.
‘Too Soon’, uncharacteristically composed by all three members of the group, was recorded in guitarist Johnny Took‘s bedroom, before being mixed by Spike Stent (U2, Depeche Mode, Muse, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Oasis) in LA. The track doesn’t shy away from the numerous comparisons that have been drawn between them and former Brit-Pop sensation Oasis, with Tommy O’Dell‘s soaring vocal performance here sounding like the perfect mix between Liam Gallagher and Green Day’s Bille Joe Armstrong.
From the track’s opening beat, the song explodes with O’Dell’s distinct vocals immediately ringing out over a echoed guitar riff and a McCartney-esque bass line, with each individual melody flowing effortlessly together, before building to it’s equally bombastic chorus. Despite the resounding arrangement, the song also manages to flawlessly incorporate the use of acoustic guitar; an element in itself becoming a signature of the band’s live sound and performances.
DMA’s are set to tour Australia in February for St Jerome’s Laneway Festival, before jetting off to the UK for shows in Glasgow, Newcastle, London, Leeds and Manchester.
DMA’S debut album Hills End is due for release worldwide on February 26, and includes previously released hits ‘Delete‘ and ‘Play It Out‘.
