DMA’S mark the return of MTV Unplugged Live by sharing the emotionally-charged acoustic version of ‘The End’ from their session as part of the launch.
This represents’ first live performance of the song, which has since become a staple of their live sets.
The original studio version was recently added to Radio X’s daytime list and to Absolute Radio’s C-list.
Listen to ‘The End – MTV Unplugged Live’ by The DMA’S on the Shoot Music New Releases Playlist on Spotify.
“It was the most fun I’ve had in awhile, just rearranging the songs and hearing them in a different light,” says Johnny Took, “To be able to do this is a bit of a dream come true.”
Renowned for their ragged, anthemic energy often inspired by the Britpop and Manchester scenes, ‘MTV Unplugged Live’ finds DMA’S stripping their songbook back to basics.
Focusing on acoustic guitar, piano, violin and cello, these new arrangements unveil fresh new perspectives on the songs. Some now carry a folk vibe, while others hone in on the poignancy of the band’s lyrics.
DMA’S second album ‘For Now’ was released last May and charted in the UK at #13 in the official charts and #2 in the Independent charts, a significant achievement for the Sydney trio.
