DMA's are pretty awesome and underrated. But that's okay because they are still really new. They'll be playing Thursday, most likely kicking off the awesome lineup of back to back bands playing that day (The Growlers, Courtney Barnett, Mac Demarco ect).
DMA's are basically three chav looking fellows from Newtown, New South Wales, Australia that play music that sounds a lot like Oasis. But in a good way. Seriously, every single song they've released so far is wonderful. They are pretty excellent song writers in my opinion.
They have one self titled EP out with five songs on it. Plus two singles and more music on the way. This is their biography taken from their Facebook page
"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 (Violent Soho, Snakadaktal, DZ Deathrays), 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."
