Nobody knew this Sydney mob called DMAs until Goodgod homie Johann Ponniah signed them to I Oh You. They hadn’t played live or released anything. But I Oh You know how to push this continent’s buttons. And without any introduction they uploaded a video of ‘Delete’ and got the internet going nuts – not just asking “are they really lads with acoustic guitars” – but saying what? where from? how? what else? This song is great.
Last Friday, DMAs launched their EP (it’s #7 on the iTunes charts already) and performed their first live show ever. So there’s three things you can do to catch up on them. Buy their EP. Find wisdom in the spare words from DMAs in this interview with Goodgod’s Greta Balog below. And go buy a ticket to their EP launch show, here at Goodgod in May.
Alright boys, what does DMA’s stand for?
Abbreviation of a few previous names we had.
The track “Delete” is all that a lot of people heard – what’s the next song they should listen to on your EP?
Your low. It’s an old song of johnnies that I’v always liked and always wanted to make a DMA’s track. It brings back fond memories for me
What’s it like dropping a single and having such a huge fan base from just one song?
It’s exciting but i wouldn’t say it’s a huge fan base, we want a lot bigger one
Do you get the shits with each other often?
It’s equal, to say that you never get the shits with some one that your close with means that your probably not that close after all
Johnny, you used to be the lead singer of Little Bastard, what led you to change your style of music so much and start DMA’s?
I can answer that Johnny loves all types of music this is just another outlet for him
What can we expect from DMA’s in the near future?
To be a band that everyone knows
