The first and only single off the Rippled Soul album, this is a chunky bit of work that became a single because it was the only track ready at the time. It also marked the arrival of ex Stems bass player Julian Matthews into the band.

Press Release
In case you weren't aware, DM3 are the city of Perth's primo power pop combo. Seemingly unknown outside of their home town by the rest of Australia, this three piece unit is fronted by former Stems mainman, Dom Mariani. Highly respected in both the US and Europe where their records are all released and where they regularly tour, it's hoped that they will be tempted to spend more time on the East Coast as they embark on the lead-up to their fourth album with Citadel Records, Rippled Soul.

Lure is the first single off this new album. Dripping with the kind of guitar crunch and pop melody that's not heard enough these days, Lure continues Dom Mariani's tradition of exceeding himself by finding new niches within the pop song-writing form. The two non album b-sides are the instrumental track Rome, whose Farfisa keyboard approach harks back to the early sound of the Stems and an Triple J Acoustic Session version of the Stems song Jumping to Conclusions.
