In anticipation of their forthcoming EP, New York-based indie-rock band, DAWNS have premiered the dramatically surreal video for "Human" - an impactful visual representation of their depth and growing tenacity within (and beyond) the post-rock genre.
Consisting of Joshua Perna (vocals), Aaron Brown (guitar), and Matt Carpenter (drums) DAWNS is multi-faceted and sonically ambitious three-piece. Imbued with elements of electronic and R&B, the band possesses an admirable sense of intentionality in their music that stands out as an aesthetically conscious, artfully crafted whole.
"The writing process for 'Human' was filled with creative surprises from start to finish. The entire song was written around a randomly arranged sample of guitar feedback. The vaguely unhinged mood of that short sample ended up dictating the theme of the song, both instrumentally and vocally. Lyrically, the song touches on the duality of being human - it explores that question of whether or not we are more than our bodies." - Joshua Perna
