Sydney, Australia-based indie trio DMA's came together around 2012 when members of local rock band Underlights -- Johnny Took and Tommy O’Dell -- started writing songs with guitarist Matt Mason.
Working together as three songwriters, the trio quickly developed a sound that threw back to early-'90s Manchurian indie rock, with particular likenesses to some of the scene's greats like Oasis, Primal Scream, and Happy Mondays. DMA's quickly signed to tiny label I Oh You on the strength of their home-recorded demos, and before long their debut single, "Delete," climbed the charts and gained them praise from the press, musical peers, and a growing fan base. Their self-titled debut EP surfaced in the summer of 2014, and in early 2016 they dropped their debut full-length, Hills End. ~ Fred Thomas, Rovi
