DATEMONTHYEAR RELEASE NEW SINGLE
Hamilton band DateMonthYear have released a new single 'Numbers', full of hard hitting lyrics that reflect on today’s society and how people’s lives revolve around numbers.
DMY Founder Trevor Faville said the new song wasn't created to be a happy song to distract people from what is going on in the world. Instead, DMY wanted a song that addresses problems in society and the world, as well as things people see on television, social media or when they walk out the door.
It is about providing a voice for the issues rather than a distraction.
"We feel that the creatives in our society really should hold up a mirror rather than express a point of view as such, and in this song the mirror reflects things in our world that are perhaps things that some of us do not want to see," Faville said.
Shunning traditional band formats, DateMonthYear’s structure means that ‘commitment is defined by contribution’ with allowance for new ideas and influence. The fluidity of the line-up ensures a smorgasbord of musical flavours.
Faville and fellow band members’ Emma Koretz, Brooke Baker, Hayely Schwass and Tyler Leet’s inspiration and the idea behind the song is that for a lot of people, numbers define everything – the numbers of your mortgage or rent, income, supermarket shopping and simply hoping that you have enough to pay for groceries and bills.
The melodious song sings about how people go through life hoping that the numbers fall their way.
Faville said the song is a teaser of what’s to come from their album that they’re working on.
DateMonthYear expect to release their next song, called March, in early 2017.
