DMA’S are: Tommy O’Dell – Vocals // Matthew Mason – Lead guitar, backing vocals // Johnny Took – Acoustic guitar
DMA’S new material arrives as their first since last year’s celebrated EP I Love You Unconditionally, Sure Am Going To Miss You, which in turn followed the band’s highest charting album to date, 2020’s THE GLOW (UK Official Albums Chart #4, Scotland #2 and ARIA #2).
As the band sit on the cusp of releasing their new album How Many Dreams?, DMA’S have found an iconic, mythical status among their fanbase – 65,000 ticket sales on their last UK tour alone shows the open-armed response they elicit on international shores. Their world is one of acceptance, freedom of expression, collective high, and each twist and turn in their journey to this point has led them to what will be a landmark album release for the band. The album’s opening offerings ‘I Don’t Need To Hide’ and ‘Everybody’s Saying Thursday’s The Weekend’ represent the comfort in being embraced but more than that, they exemplify the biggest talent that DMA’S possess: the ability to distil the wrenches of their personal stories into anthemic universal experiences.
How Many Dreams? was crafted by the band to be the grand sum of every part of who DMA’S are. Gleaned from over 70 early demos, it sees them drawing from a wider sonic palette than ever before. Recorded in London with Stuart Price (Dua Lipa, The Killers, Pet Shop Boys) and Rich Costey (Sigur Ros, Muse, Foster the People), then completed with Konstantin Kersting (Mallrat, The Jungle Giants) in the band’s hometown of Sydney, How Many Dreams? charters a course with stops at dizzying highs and crushing lows. There are songs to come up to and songs to come down to. It is the band emerging from a darker place, and the exhilarating future sound of a band without barriers at the top of their game.
