It is with great pleasure that I OH YOU presents ‘In The Air’, the enamouring new single from DMA’S. This is the second single to be rereleased from their forthcoming sophomore LP For Now which is due for release 27 Apr 2018 via I OH YOU.
‘In The Air’ reveals a softer side to the Sydney hailing group, with sweeping production, and day-dream inducing lyrics that shine a light on the band’s much-loved talent for pop-writing. Written on an old piano in a few years back, the lyrics of this ballad create an emotional journey “I can’t say, where will I be when the world stops shaking, I can’t stay, where will I be when my heart’s still breaking” vocalist Tom O’Dell’s sweet vocal croons, “it’s in the air, there’s something in the way she drifts up there”.
Mostly recorded at DMA’S studio above the Lady Hampshire Hotel in Camperdown, ‘In The Air´ was finessed at The Grove in Somersby, NSW with producer Kim Moyes (The Presets). Allowing themselves the time to take their time creatively by spreading out the recording process has resulted in a single that is full of beauty, space, and wonder. It is another stylistic leap forward for the Sydney locals.
Since the release of their ARIA nominated, critically acclaimed debut LP Hills End in March 2016, DMA’S have been adorned with an abundance of praise from around the world, as critics and fans alike are drawn to their undeniably recognisable brand of guitar-driven pop anthems. The band’s debut single ‘Delete’ achieved gold status in Australia (35,000+ sales) in February 2017, following on from their much-loved cover of Cher’s ‘Believe’ performed for triple j’s Like A Version amassing over 4million views on YouTube, and charting at #6 in the Hottest 100 – the highest charting ‘Like A Version’ cover of all time.
Between stints in the studio, the band have toured non-stop throughout the world playing sold out headline shows across the UK and Europe and billings on some of the world’s biggest festivals including Coachella, Reading & Leeds, Fuji Rock, a surprise set at Glastonbury in 2016 and Splendour in the Grass and Laneway Festival on home soil.
DMA’S Sophomore LP For Now is scheduled for release 27 April 2017. If the remarkable success of their debut is anything to go by, it’s going to be huge 2018 for the trio.
