DMA’S are doing their best to keep fans entertained during this difficult time, with the group sharing an “isolation version” of their latest single, “The Glow”, overnight.
Earlier this year, fans of DMA’S were likely looking at May 3rd as the day which would see the group celebrating a high-ranking entry into the ARIA chart with their third album, The Glow. Instead, the current pandemic saw the group’s record pushed back from its original release date of April 24th to July 10th, meaning we’ll all have to wait just a little bit longer to celebrate.
However, the group haven’t been keeping quiet during this period of lockdown. Rather, they’ve released new singles, performed for the Music From the Home Front concert, and shared a new single. Now, days after their sold-out London performance was livestreamed, vocalist Tommy O’Dell has taken to social media to offer up a stripped-back version of their album’s title track.
Sharing an “isolation version” of “The Glow” last night, the intimate recording sees O’Dell accompanying himself with little more than a keyboard, allowing his smooth vocals to help carry the gorgeous track.
A minimal performance that may rank as one of the finest to come out of this isolation period, O’Dell’s rendition of the track not only helps to cement him as one of the most phenomenal vocalists in Australian music, but to help fans get a little more excited about their new album when it drops in July.
In related news, DMA’S are also set to feature in the upcoming debut issue of Rolling Stone Australia, discussing their upcoming album, and their plans to potentially record a “heavier” EP in the near future.
“There’s so many songs that didn’t make the album,” explained guitarist Johnny Took. “We have talked about doing an EP or an album, or a mini-album, or something of just a harder, punkier style, heavier – for us – style.
“I guess we’ll see where we’re at, but that’s one thing I would like DMA’S to be. The kind of band where we say, ‘Yes, we have made an album like The Glow, which is a big pop record, but I don’t see why we can’t kind of shift as we go along.’”
