DMA's are a bunch of Madchester/Britpop aficionados from Australia, who make impulsive, melody driven indie-pop, in pure celebration of those leaders of the genre; Happy Mondays, Stone Roses, Oasis etc.
Members Tommy, Mason and Johnny, are three friends from Newtown, on the fringes of south Sydney. Since releasing their debut single Delete in February, they've been selling tickets by the bucket load Down Under, performed to a packed GW McLennan Tent at Splendour in the Grass, and have now reached the shores of their personal musical mecca; the UK, on tour with the Courteeners.
DMA's release their double A side single 'So We Know / Laced' on 17th November on Partisan Records. 'Laced' was Zane Lowe's Next Hype, and is accompanied by the bedsit-surrealism new video, which encapsulates the madcap world of budding indie heroes Tommy, Mason and Johnny. 'So We Know' is a more laid back, hazy track, allowing for a melancholy recovery from the hedonistic highs of 'Laced'.
With cracked vocals and burnished melodies, delivered with the honesty of the fallen and skewered by their own fallibility, DMA’s are Australia’s unlikely lads.
