DMA's: Hills End
February 26th 2016 | Infectious Music / BMG | Albums
Since DMA's burst on the scene earlier this year they have not stopped with their thrilling shows all over the world and have now finished recording their debut album, "Hills End", which is due for release on 26 February through Infectious / BMG.
Hills End was mainly recorded by the band in the bedroom of guitarist Johnny Took in Sydney. After the attention awarded to the band, the album ended up being mixed by the award winning producer Mark 'Spike' Stent. The twelve track album showcases the band’s unique talent in writing anthemic, heartfelt tunes which effortlessly manage to sound like immediate classic guitar-pop songs. The album looks set to be one of the most exciting releases of 2016 and can only further the buzz the band have already created.
The singles "Your Low" and, more recently, "Lay Down" caught the attention of NME, who called them “truly thrilling”; BBC Radio 1, BBC 6Music and Radio X. Dave Roundtree of Blur said on air, “DMA’S have the swagger of Oasis and the musicality and inventiveness of Arctic Monkeys”.
Having first come from Australia - via a triumphant appearance at CMJ in New York - to perform at the Great Escape in Brighton, DMA’s have since played festivals all around the world including Benicassim, Reading and Leeds, Latitude, Lollapalooza, Haldern Pop and Lowlands to mention just a few. With sold out shows all over Europe, the USA and Japan, they recently completed a headline UK tour which culminated in a sweaty, sold out singalong show at London Dingwalls.
