Album Review: DMA’s – The Glow

Posted on 07 Jul 2020 at 8:18am

When Noel Gallagher sang Half The World Away he wasn’t thinking about DMA’s – the Sydney-based trio of Tommy O’Dell, Matt Mason, and Johnny Took didn’t form until 2012 – but it’s always sounded like, even from that distance, they were listening intently to him.

As proof, their first two albums (2016’s Hill’s End and For Now, released two years later) owed an obvious debt to Britpop-era ennui, a trait that in the UK especially has made them arena fillers and much loved by a tribe who identify less and less with what indie rock comes up with for them.

Given that here noticeable musical progress has always been another scene’s problem, the Australians couldn’t have been blamed for some voluntary inertia of their own. But whilst The Glow doesn’t tear up history, it infuses their sound with enough club inspired difference to keep the idea of making new friends a possibility.

The last few months have made me realise how important music is to people – Live4ever’s interview with DMA’s

Posted on 03 Jul 2020 at 8:07am

When Oasis split in 2009 it was hard to escape the feeling that it would be temporary; the Gallaghers were famous after all for their fraternal strops and they’d recently made a partial return to form in Dig Out Your Soul. So, everyone waited. And waited. And waited.

For the people they left behind there was no ready made replacement. This wasn’t simply a case of turning to another band; in the likes of Wonderwall, Rock N’ Roll Star and Supersonic many saw and heard reflections of themselves, a connection which was far deeper than just music.

As time has passed however, new standard bearers for this under-served community emerged, groups and singers who’d developed largely outside of the industry’s ecosystem. Now, acts like The Courteeners, Blossoms and Gerry Cinnamon all sell out arenas and stadiums and yet remain largely unknown outside of what is almost an underground following, with by contrast what was once known as indie rock jagging sharply towards artier, less traditional landscapes during the last eighteen months.

Formed during 2012, DMA’s – a Sydney based trio made up of Tommy O’Dell, Matt Mason and Johnny Took – have emerged as another leading light in this anti-movement. Adopting a work ethic that you sense their fans would approve of, they’ve toured hard and let image be another band’s problem. With a belief in authenticity at their core, they’ve also made virtues of writing hooky, melody-strong tunes and doing shows which are about bubbling up with mates and temporarily forgetting the world outside.

As the release of their new album The Glow is finally on the horizon, Live4ever caught up with Tommy as we talked lockdown, their club-inspired new ideas and why Britain has taken them to their hearts.
