Aussie Indie Rockers Line Up Live Dates in Yorkshire


by Victoria Holdsworth

DMA’S have announced their return to the UK with a headline tour in December 2018, including three dates in Yorkshire.

The Australian indie rockers have been embraced by UK audiences, 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 and Kasabian and performed at various UK festivals including most recently slots at Reading & Leeds festival.

DMA’S second album, For Now, was released in 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, passionate emotive rock’n’roll songs, demonstrating that the DMA’s are teeming with confidence, with their  crowd-pleasing hooks and rich melodies making 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, with the character and attitude of his voice now heightened by a fresh new soulful element.
