Just last week DMA’S returned from their year-and-a-half break following the release of their ARIA-nominated debut album Hills End, and now the Sydney trio show their faces again with a charming little clip as well.

“We feel like ‘Dawning’ gives people the opportunity to decide what the song means to them,” frontman Tommy O’Dell says of the new number. “While the message of the song is quite dark, we also wanted create a piece of music that sounds uplifting and hopeful.”

Recorded at the band’s studio above the Lady Hampshire Hotel in their hometown of Camperdown, the track sees production efforts from Kim Moyes of The Presets, who’ll be producing their entire new album.

The band are also getting stuck into a couple of shows at the start of November, so find out more here, and check out the new clip below.
