A couple of years ago, three friends started writing and recording music together above a hairdresser on a busy street in Newtown, Australia. They’d known each other casually for awhile and had all been in other bands previously, but hadn’t found their own individual voices or the proper outlet for the songs percolating in their heads. At first, they’d fumble around with their recording equipment, pick up whatever guitars were lying around and record. But before too long, they realized they’d hit upon the magic that had eluded them up to that point.
DMA’S have been touring North America all summer. Playing shows, pretty much everywhere, including appearances at Governor’s Ball, Bonnaroo, Osheaga and last week at Lollapalooza in Chicago.
