Hailing from a small town just outside of New York City, DAWNS bends genre and style, creating a brand of indie pop that is entirely its own. Growing up in a rural town, vocalist Joshua Perna taught himself to record and produce music out of necessity, mixing and matching the various sounds he spent his youth listening to. Pena and his life-long friend, guitarist Aaron Brown, started multiple bands together throughout their formative years; upon meeting drummer Matt Carpenter in 2016, DAWNS was born.
With raw guitars and dense, atmospheric soundscapes, the three-piece brings immense amounts of energy to their records and live show, and will release their debut EP, YOUTH//1 on November 11th. Check out DAWNS’ new video for their single “Cool”:
