DMA’S release acoustic version of ‘In The Air’

Sydney trio DMA’S have today released an acoustic version of track ‘In The Air’Their purity and command of songcraft is on vivid display throughout the this version. It’s a beautiful ballad, with sweeping production, and daydream-induing lyrics that shine a light on the bands much-loved talent for pop writing.DMA’S supported Liam Gallagher at Finsbury Park last weekend and will return to the UK for some more dates in August (see below).



Second album‘For Now’ was released this May and charted in the UK at #13 in the official charts and #2 in the Independent charts, a significant achievement for the Sydney trio. Produced by the band alongside Kim Moyes of The Presets‘For Now’ is a gloriously uplifting album of beautifully honed, passionately emotive rock’n’roll songs. Demonstrating that DMA’S are brimming with confidence, its crowd-pleasing hooks and rich melodies make this a timeless indie album.

While the collection echoes the strident, hook-heavy Britpop and Madchester influences of the band’s debut, it’s also an album that demonstrates a very organic evolution. ‘The End’ (written by guitarist Johnny Took) shows Kim Moyes’ influence with its dark electronic production and synths, while the psychedelic-tinged ‘Emily Whyte’ (written by guitarist Matt Mason) erupts into an epic, blissed out album closer.

More broadly, the most transformative element of the band’s sound comes in the shape of Tommy O’Dell’s vocals – the character and attitude of his voice is now heightened by a fresh new soulful element.

“Last time round, we were still working out what kind of band we want to be, and we still are,” admits Johnny Took“We still have that jangly rock’n’roll aspect to it, but it’s also matured in other ways. It feels like a natural progression for the band.”

‘For Now’ is available on CD, Ltd Edition Red vinyl, Cassette Tape, Digital download and streaming sites.
