Two of the biggest names in Australian music right now in What So Not and DMA’s have combined forces for one hell of a collaboration in ‘The Change’, a fast-paced journey filled with thrilling electronic production and soaring vocals that you’ll never want to finish.
It doesn’t take long at all for ‘The Change’ to shift into third gear through the heavy reliance on a drum and bass partnership driving the blistering pace of the track, which works beautifully alongside Tommy O’Dell’s soaring vocals that we’ve all come to love every time we’re graced with their presence. What truly stands out in ‘The Change’ is What So Not‘s ability to pull the track right back in the breakdown period which allows O’Dell’s raw vocals to shine and showcase the pure emotion held in the track, right before the intensity rises right back up and gives the track the fierce ending it deserves.
“I met Johnny at their studio – a small room next to a noisy inner-city road, above a pub, with no sound insulation. We had (somehow) never met but clicked instantly, discussing life on the road, COVID & found commonality on our all-time favourite artists. The first thing we made is pretty much the track you hear. Johnny liked our little idea so much he decided to get the whole band involved a couple of days later we tracked Tommy & brought Mason in for some extra pieces. I feel like this record is one the two of us have always wanted to make but never had the right pieces of the puzzle, until now.” – What So Not
