DMA'S share new track In The Air
Sydney trio, DMA’S 2016 debut album Hills End, became a word-of-mouth hit in the UK. Now the band release their new album For Now on April 27. But for now, they share the single In The Air.
Produced by the band alongside Kim Moyes of The Presets, For Now is an uplifting album of emotive rock’n’roll songs. A teaser of what to expect emerged late last year when intro track Dawning was released. In The Air has just been premiered by Triple J.
While the collection echoes the Britpop influences of the band, on tracks like the opener For Now, there are other influences at play. The Depeche Mode-esque Do I Need You Now? The End, written by guitarist Johnny Took, shows Kim Moyes’ influence with its production and synths, and the psychedelic-tinged Emily Whyte, written by guitarist Matt Mason.
“Last time round, we were still working out what kind of band we want to be, and we still are,” admits Johnny Took.
“We still have that jangly rock’n’roll aspect to it, but it’s also matured in other ways. It feels like a natural progression for the band.”
