Word of South


With their fourth studio album “All Your Favorite Bands,” Dawes has managed to transcend their Southern California influences and establish their own sound and themes. Songs on the new album range from the glass-half-full optimism of the first single, “Things Happen” and the minor-chord tension of “I Can’t Think About It Now,” to the soulful gospel of “Waiting for Your Call,” and the epic, Dylan-esque set piece “Now That It’s Too Late, Maria.” Dawes is able to master the art of duplicating the energy from their live shows and placing it into a studio recorded album, and as a result Dawes is creating their own special rock group category. Dawes is currently taking the road by storm on their international tour.
