Thursday 7th December 2018 – Victoria Warehouse
DMA’S 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.
DMA’S have been embraced by the UK audience, seeing their live shows consistently sell out and their performances going from strength. As well as a UK tour earlier this year they’ve also supported acts such as Liam Gallagher, Richard Ashcroft, The Kooks & Kasabian and performed at various UK festivals including most recent slots at Reading & Leeds festival & Bellahouston Park.
