DMA’S release new video for single ‘The End’, out now through Infectious Records. The video was directed by Bill (WAM) Bleakley and won several awards at the Australian Clipped Music Video Festival 2018, including Best Video, Best Directing and Best Cinematography.


‘The End’ (written by guitarist Johnny Took) shows producer Kim Moyes’ influence with its dark electronic production and synths. Tommy O’Dell’s echoing vocals initially set a melancholic tone, before the instrumentals break down into a hazy, infectious anthemic hook as they ask “I can feel the end…is there something more?” 

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. 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.
