Last week, Nashville-based alt-pop duo DBMK released their first single of the year. “Tough” is the latest single from the duo that has been steadily climbing to the top of the indie scene.
Over the past few years, DBMK has accumulated an incredibly tight-knit fanbase – dubbed the “KULT.” By touring across the country and selling out numerous shows in their home state of Florida they’ve managed to dominate the underground scene.
Despite the touring limitations of 2020, the duo persevered and released a 6-track EP titled Jump in the Dark. The EP performed impressive streaming numbers, reaching new fans and resonating with their longtime fanbase.
DBMK Back After A ‘Tough’ Year
With each new release, DBMK continues to push the boundaries of their eclectic but fresh alt-pop sound, crafting songs that explore the complex layers of the human experience. Now, DBMK’s genre-defying prowess is on full display on their newest single, “Tough.”
With Kyle Knudsen on vocals and Colton Ward on drums, the two tackle ideas like love, loss, joy, and misery. Fusing catchy pop melodies, experimental electronics, and a standout guitar solo, they deliver something for everyone with this track.
And in an exclusive statement the group had this to say about the newest single.” So ‘Tough’ is a song about feeling utterly stuck in the place you’re at in life. And being constantly overlooked by a world that is moving faster and faster around you.” The duo says in a statement. “This place that you’re stuck in could be school, a job, a relationship, or a state of mine. Do you have the confidence to get up and change your circumstances?”
DBMK is definitely asking the tough questions with this one, and hopefully, we will see more of them before year’s end. But for now, check out the video accompanying their newest song and be on the lookout for more on MusicDaily.app.
