Keeping things simple is probably one of the most complicated things that a musician could ever do. Ironic isn’t it? DBMK creates a really immersive and cinematic blend of sound, yet their indie pop is direct, deliberate, and extremely easy to relate to. In December of 2014 they released The Abyss, their debut full-length album. The songs are introspective and intimate, but their sound is big, with reverberated guitar riffs, soulful vocals and great arrangements that echo artists such as Twenty One Pilots and The Neighbourhood, but with an equally honest and less polished attitude.
Since the summer of 2013 they have been featured in The Tampa Bay Times, KTLA Channel 5 News, and PopVLTR Magazine, and their music is aired on 97X’s Local Motion and USF Bull’s Radio. They recently created and operate under their own independent record label, Kick Booty Records.
Due to the outfit’s unique brand of highly energetic live performance, they have supported such acts as New Politics, Panic! At The Disco, and AWOLNATION. In December of 2015, DBMK won 97x’s Next Big thing Local Band Search to support Walk The Moon, The Neighbourhood, and Twenty One Pilots at the Mid-Florida Amphitheater.
Though the group is relatively new, they have completely changed the way many view independent and local music by professionally releasing a music video for their song, “Rich Girls,” performing at large music festivals such as FSC’s Southern Takeover, WMNF’s Tropical Heatwave, and Cox Media’s 97x Barbecue and NBT- all within one year of their first steps into the music scene. Much of the duo’s success can in fact be attributed to their constant professionalism, fan relationships, and electrifying stage performance. In July of 2016 they released their highly anticipated sophomore studio album, “Collapse,” which was met with overwhelming fan support, and toured the Southeast United States.
