We swung by the Daytrotter studio in Late November, during our fall tour, and recorded a special 4-song set. The session airs today, and features live performances of songs from the debut EP, as well as two new tunes ‘The Fire Fighter’ and ‘Broken Record’.
Daytrotter has become one of the preeminent online music outlets, and is known as ‘the source for new music from the best emerging bands’.

Check out the MUSOscribe review of ‘So Help Me God’ with ‘Camoflage’ bside!
“They stomp through the song, sounding like a more melody-oriented Arcade Fire with better songwriting and a singer whose voice doesn’t grate on me…Plenty of shade and light on this record; if it’s a teaser to a forthcoming long-player, I’m all ears.”

Our video for ‘Beam of Light’ was just premiered on BaebleMusic.com!
“In support of their self-titled debut album released last month, the band has released a four-part video series, the final installment of which we’re premiering today. The video itself is about as appropriate a visual accompaniment as one can set to a song called “Beam of Light” by a band called D A W N S. It was shot in the Great Desert Basin in Utah at Nancy Holt’s ‘Sun Tunnel’ installments…”

Thanks, enjoy & share!

“Usually when we’re introduced to love stories it’s in the form of Nicholas Sparks novels or sad, sappy movies. Alas, a love story that we can watch, admire and not shed a single tear about. “Taillights” is the third installment for a four-part series from the band, D A W N S, released on their self-titled debut EP on June 20th (which ironically was the summer solstice, which their fourth and final music video was filmed on).”
