When they first came to prominence, the DMA’s copped a lot of Oasis comparisons, mostly due to Tommy O’Dell’s Gallagher-esque sneer and the band’s penchant for dressing for the Manchester mist rather than the Sydney sunshine. But over the course of two albums, it has become clear that they are closer in sound to other Northerners like the Verve, the Stone Roses, and the Charlatans – bands that deal in chorused-out guitars, peeling melodies and baggy beats – with the odd strum-along to break things up. Silver is a tender tune, a shimmering summery song that straddles their Preset-produced second record, and the heart-on-sleeve balladry of their debut single Delete. Of course, anyone with enough guitar pedals can approximate a classic sound, but top-shelf songwriting and O’Dell’s ringing bell of a voice means that DMA’s stand alone, despite the many comparisons.

Our new album ‘For Now’ is out now. Includes the new singles ‘In The Air’, ‘Dawning’ & the title track ‘For Now’.

One of Liam Gallagher’s fave Aussie bands, The DMA’S have grown their global fanbase exponentially by sonically planting themselves squarely in the sweet spot where Oasis and The Go-Betweens overlap on Hill’s Endthen touring relentlessly behind it. Now the follow-up is “done and coming soon”, according to the band’s label I OH YOU. Recorded in a studio above a pub in Sydney’s Inner-West, the trio have retained the DIY attitude of their bedroom-recorded debut EP but with The Presets’ Kim Moyes manning the desk, brought some shiny hi-fi production nous to their output. Just give ‘Dawning’ another spin and picture the potential festival sing-alongs to come.

DMA's in their clip for 'Dawning'

Just last week DMA’S returned from their year-and-a-half break following the release of their ARIA-nominated debut album Hills End, and now the Sydney trio show their faces again with a charming little clip as well.

“We feel like ‘Dawning’ gives people the opportunity to decide what the song means to them,” frontman Tommy O’Dell says of the new number. “While the message of the song is quite dark, we also wanted create a piece of music that sounds uplifting and hopeful.”  Recorded at the band’s studio above the Lady Hampshire Hotel in their hometown of Camperdown, the track sees production efforts from Kim Moyes of The Presets, who’ll be producing their entire new album.

DMA’S Debut Album “Hills End”, With their debut album ready to be released  ‘Hills End’ on February 26th, catch a video watch of album track ‘Too Soon’ from Australia’s answer to Oasis The DMA’SDMA’S (dee-em-ayes) is Johnny Took, Matt Mason and Tommy O’Dell – three friends who came together making nostalgic garage pop in a bedroom in Newtown. Australia.
Having met whilst playing in other bands, DMA’S are three writers, three mates, three frontmen – all with a common sense of purpose and musicality.
Writing a few songs together, the band demoed them in Johnny’s bedroom-studio, gaining instant attention – all before putting out an official track or playing a single show.

After signing with tastemaker label I OH YOU, DMA’S released their debut single ‘Delete’ to rave reviews, with Channel V calling the band “the next big thing”, and Triple J adding the track to high rotation.
With NME picking them as a buzz band to watch, Blur’s Dave Rowntree naming ‘Delete’ his Record of the Week on XFM, and the band selling out their first national tour – DMA’S have gone from strength to strength.

With “Too Soon” Directed by Mitchell Grant, the clip features the three band members hanging out in different places.

Vocalist Tommy O’Dell says of the video: “We’ve worked with Mitch a few times, so we know he is sick. We like that it’s a purely visual clip and not conceptual or based on a narrative – sometimes you can get lost in that.”

DMA’S will be over in the UK end February/early March playing a handful of dates to support the album, stopping at:
FEBRUARY 2016
28 GLASGOW, Stereo
MARCH
01 NEWCASTLE, Think Tank
02 LONDON, Garage
04 LEEDS, Belgrave
05 MANCHESTER, Ruby Lounge

The Australian act come from the same scene that gave us DZ Deathrays, but go for a much more retro sound. Their choice of Kappa hats and cagoules constantly sees them compared to Oasis, but really there’s a whole host of other 90s bands in the DNA of their music – from Pavement to Blur.

DMA’s
Show: Corn Exchange 15th May 11pm (NME show)
It’s been years since I’ve seen an indie band divide people like DMA’s do. Defiantly influenced by Britpop – from their Kappa hats to their choruses – the Australian band were a big hit at CMJ last year. Since then they’ve supported The Courteeners and collected their various recordings into one batch to be released on their new label Infectious (Alt J, These New Puritans).
