Australian trio, DMA’s have unveiled a new video for an acoustic version of their track ‘In The Air’.
The opening of the song begins with the piano, lasting around 15 seconds. This sets a light tone for the song.
The song then transitions into the guitar, which then cues Tommy O’Dell to come in on the vocals.
The vocals are soft, which transitions well with the lyrics. The lyrics go on about bad times and heartbreak and will they be there when they are suffering.
Three minutes in, the singing stops and this goes into a 30-second long duo with the pianist and guitarist.
The song then transitions back into the lyrics for a minute before fading out with the piano becoming slower and the guitarist playing slower.
Overall, the song is really good for an acoustic cover. The slower pace works well to compliment the lyrics and give it more of an emotional feel.
The song is completely different to DMA’S usual work, which is more rock/indie. This shows the wide array of talent amongst the band members.
Johnny Took, the guitarist, says that they are still uncertain on what type of band they want to be and are varying their efforts.
“Last time round, we were still working out what kind of band we want to be, and we still are,” admits Johnny Took. “We still have that jangly rock’n’roll aspect to it, but it’s also matured in other ways. It feels like a natural progression for the band.”
The DMA’s made a huge impression with their debut album ‘Hills End’, which became a Gold-selling smash hit back in Australia and a word-of-mouth hit here in the UK. The band have recently raised their game with their new album ‘For Now’ which will be released on April 27th through Infectious Records.
The DMA’s are also due to appear in the UK later this month for their UK Tour which has sold out.
