DMA’S are made up of Tommy O’Dell, Matt Mason and Johnny Took. The band formed in Sydney and made an immediate impression with their 2014 debut EP. Their full-length debut ‘Hills End’ saw them crash into Australia’s Top 10, before ‘For Now’ cemented them as a force to be reckoned with. The album earned three ARIA Music Award nominations for Best Group, Best Rock Album and Best Independent Release.
In 2018 they became one of the first Australian bands to play the iconic MTVUnplugged session, following in the footsteps of all-time greats such as Nirvana, Oasisand R.E.M. The performance was captured in this summer’s ‘MTV Unplugged Live’ album. DMA’S also released their second album ‘For Now’ in 2018, which achieved their highest UK chart position at #13, boosted by huge ongoing daytime support at radio. An impressive 40,000 tickets were sold on their headline UK tours and their summer touring continued that ascension with main stage sets at Isle of Wight, TRNSMT and Citadel alongside huge outdoor shows with Courteeners and NoelGallagher’s High Flying Birds.
