After impressing me with the self-titled debut EP last year, the lads from West Australian indie-pop act Pacific prove they’re no one-trick ponies with the release of a brand new single “Dawn.”

The band effortlessly blends shimmery synth sounds with a rock feel here. It’s epic and angsty, yet hopeful. You can check it out via TheMusic.com.au.

“We wanted this song to sound and feel different to anything we’ve written before,” Callum Byrne explained in a press release. “Darkness is the absence of light, and I feel like it’s a place where we are stretched and refined. With dawn being the first appearance of light, it breathes change. We wanted to try and reflect this sentiment both musically and lyrically throughout the song.”

“Dawn” takes everything I loved about Pacific and builds on it beautifully. You can hear more new songs when the trio launches the single at Albany’s White Star Hotel on March 3 and Perth’s Amplifier on March 4.
