"Triumphant" - Q Magazine
"The Aussie trio shine on third album" - Sunday Times Culture
"It's not just the music that's on another level: lyrically, 'THE GLOW' sees DMA'S at their most vulnerable, most excitable and most inspiring." - NME
DMA'S are renowned for their euphoric live performances, having previously sold out both Manchester's Castlefield Bowl and the O2 Brixton Academy in less than 24 hours. Now fans have the opportunity to purchase tickets for their April UK headline tour including their biggest UK Headline show to date at Alexandra Palace.
DMA's critically acclaimed 3rd studio album 'THE GLOW' was released in July and charted at an impressive #4 in the official UK chart, #2 in Australia and #1 in Scotland.
DMA'S new album 'THE GLOW' is a mission statement that the trio immediately encapsulate within the opening two tracks. A swaggering mash-up of Screamadelica-era attitude, big beat dynamics and modern alt-pop flair, 'Never Before' immediately sets the tone. The title track then keeps that energy firing, a rapid-rush of melodic energy, joyous optimism and a new-found confidence in Tommy O'Dells' vocals. As suggested by single 'Silver' DMA'S are expanding the scale of their sound. 'Life Is A Game Of Changing' adds an exhilirating rush of big-beat dynamics, sun-kissed Baleariac dance vibes and the guitar-meets-electro hybrid of latter day New Order. It furthers the DMA'S incorporation of digital beats and sequencers in their songwriting process. And yet DMA'S save the biggest surprise for last. 'Cobracaine' is a celebration of everything the band can be. It's a maximalist melting pot of sounds: an escalating wall of guitars the foundation for a tense, almost trancelike beat with vocals filtered through harmonies and vocoders. And as it hurtles to its mesmerising conclusion, one thing is certain: this is the most fully realised of the band's three albums to date.
'THE GLOW' was produced and mixed by Grammy award winning producer Stuart Price (Madonna, The Killers, New Order) in the historic Westlake Recording Studios, a long way from the band's early days in Sydney. From their emotive heart to their towering hooks, the core traits that have earned DMA'S a huge folllowing are still prominent in new album 'THE GLOW', but now their anthemic sound is infused with a euphoric flood of alt-pop flair with pulsating synths and taut beats. While the huge choruses will prove to be electrifying highlights of future shows.
'THE GLOW' is available to purchase in heavy weight vinyl as well as a limited edition heavyweight tri colour vinyl available through HMV and independent record stores. Exclusive merchandise bundles are available through the band's official store.
DMA'S are made up of Tommy O'Dell, Matt Mason and Johnny Took. The band formed in Sydney and made an immediate impression with their 2014 debut EP. Their full-length debut 'Hill's End' saw them crash into Australia's Top 10. In 2018 they became one of the first Australian bands to play the iconic MTV Unplugged session, following in the footsteps of all-time greats such as Nirvana, Oasis and R.E.M. The perfomance was captured in their 'MTV Unplugged Live' album. Second studio album 'For Now' cemented them as a force to be reckoned with. The album earned three ARIA Music Award nominations for Best Group, Best Rock Album and Best Independent Release and entered the UK charts at #13. Current album 'THE GLOW' received fantastic critical reviews across the board for their inventiveness and musicianship and charted #4 in the UK, #2 in Australia and #1 in Scotland.
An impressive 40,000 tickets were sold on their last headline UK tour and they spent last summer touring with main stage sets at Isle of Wight, TRNSMT and Citadel festivals as well as huge outdoor shows with Courteneers, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds as well as main support for Liam Gallagher's 2019 UK arena tour. They sold out O2 Brixton Academy in just hours and performed to a riotous crowd shortly before lockdown in March. The also sold out their Castlefield Bowl headline in less than 24 hours and announced their biggest London headline show to date at Alexandra Palace.
