Sydney’s DMA’s have released another new single, “Laced.” It follows up “So We Know,” and it shows a totally different side of the young three-piece. While “So We Know” was a raw, largely acoustic emotion-packed track, this one is bubbling and boiling with energy and excitement.
“Laced” is absolutely dreamy from start to end. Opening with strong, signature breathy vocals from Tommy O’Dell ahead of instantly catchy guitars, the harmonies and smooth basslines flow through to build the track up into an inevitable instant classic. Huge echoey vocals and punchy as hell drums pull the chorus right up into 90s Brit-pop space (though I’m not sure how many more times the boys are going to wanna hear this comparison) — I can already hear the festival singalongs in my head.
DMA’s are reppin’ for Sydney label I OH YOU at CMJ this week, before hitting the UK for the very first time. Along with “So We Know,” “Laced” will be officially released on a 7″ come November 14.
