DMA’S started 2020 on a high, playing the iconic O2 Academy in Brixton to a sold-out crowd, right before the world went into lockdown. They continued from stage to screen, performing a breathtaking rendition of the Crowded House classic ‘Better Be Home Soon’ on Channel 9’s Music From The Home Front Anzac Day special, followed by an epic run of 24 sold-out ‘Unplugged & Intimate’ headline shows in Brisbane and Sydney, before taking the stage ahead of the opening bounce at the 2020 Toyota AFL Grand Final in Brisbane last month.
The band’s accolades this year alone include nominations for triple j Australian Album of the Year and 5 x ARIA Award nominations including Album Of The Year, Best Rock Album, Best Group, Best Independent Release and Best Australian Live Act.
THE GLOW, the band’s latest album, amassed a staggering 26M+ combined streams since its release in July, scoring countless award nominations and earning praise from critics and tastemakers around the world, with Q Magazine declaring the group’s third album “triumphant”.
‘DMA’S take their songs and production values to new spheres on their third studio album. Varied and splendidly diverse, THE GLOW sees the Australian group approach their latest project with arresting confidence, ambition and creativity.’ – Clash Music
‘It’s not just the music that’s on another level: lyrically, THE GLOW sees DMA’S at their most vulnerable, most excitable and most inspiring.’ – NME Australia
The group’s performance at Laneway Festival and their recent smaller ‘Unplugged & Intimate’ shows scored the Sydney trio an ARIA nomination for Best Australian Live Act, with dates capturing the attention of NME Australia, who said “[the] trio ditch the dancefloor and dazzle with stripped-back set”.
If there is anything 2020 has shown us of DMA’S, it’s that they put on one hell of a show. Tickets will not last long, so get in quick!
