Across twelve tracks, How Many Dreams? weaves electronic dance elements seamlessly through the beloved foundations of guitar rock, punk, and lyricism of their highest charting album THE GLOW (2020), which peaked at #2 on the ARIA charts, #4 on the UK Official Albums Chart, and #1 in Scotland.
An album noted for its explorative qualities and direct positivity, ‘How Many Dreams?’ has been gripping fans old and new as the band shared teaser tracks ranging from the electrifying ‘I Don’t Need To Hide’, ‘Olympia’, ‘Fading Like A Picture’ and ‘Everybody’s Saying Thursday’s The Weekend’ to the more recent, high energy, heart-warming bliss of ‘Something We Are Overcoming’.
The singles from How Many Dreams? so far have seen strong support and playlisting at Virgin Radio, Radio X (winning a ‘Record Of The Year’ nomination) Absolute, Absolute 20s, Triple J and Triple M, as well as spins at BBC Radio 1. The band appeared on Soccer AM (where they played ‘I Don’t Need To Hide’) and this Sunday 2nd April will perform live on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch. A wide range of press have supported the release too including 1883, Classic Pop, Clash, Daily Star, Dork, Far Out, Gigwise, Hunger, The i Paper, NME, Record Collector, Rolling Stone UK, The New Cue, Uncut and more. The tracks have dominated streaming platforms worldwide, with adds to Spotify’s New Music Friday across UK, Australia & New Zealand, Belgium, Netherlands, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam – plus a slew of tastemaker playlists across Apple, Amazon, Deezer, TIDAL, Soundcloud and YouTube Music. As of mid-December, DMA’S were the most playlisted artist in Australia.
It has been a period of re-discovery for the band resulting in a record that is the grand sum of every part of who DMA’S are.
With the band now heading into their release week, they will play a string of intimate and stripped back instore shows throughout the UK before embarking on a full UK tour which will see them play their biggest UK headline show to date at the OVO Arena, Wembley. They return in the summer for festival slots at Truck, Y Not, Tramlines, Live At Leeds: In The Park and more.
