The wait for DMA’S debut album is over with HILLS END released at the end of February on Infectious Music to wide critical acclaim.
Following on from the Radio One A-listed single DELETE, DMA’S continue their quest to deliver further anthems for the people with new single, IN THE MOMENT, which hypnotises with its infectious jangling guitars, haunting melody and a chorus filled with melancholy and emotion.
The single recently received its World Exclusive play on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show as his World Record Pick.
“ … DMA’S deliver every tune with festival-slaying swagger …” NME
“ … Brought together by a love of music and gradually becoming cult heroes …” CLASH MAGAZINE
“ … DMA’S represent togetherness in an age of dislocation; hence their day in the sun …” GUARDIAN
“ … Massive choruses; truly thrilling …” NME
DMA’S played a sold out UK tour in February and are currently on a world tour, which saw them play SXSW with Coachella to follow, amongst many UK festivals. They return to the UK in April to play the following dates:
DMA’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.
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.
