DMA’S today share new song ‘Something We Are Overcoming’ from their highly anticipated fourth album How Many Dreams?, with an accompanying video directed by Joel Burrows (Cosmo’s Midnight) and Mclean Stephenson (Alex Cameron, City Calm Down) at the band’s studio in Sydney’s Chippendale.
Recent new cuts from the album – ‘I Don’t Need To Hide’, ‘Olympia’, ‘Fading Like A Picture’ and ‘Everybody’s Saying Thursday’s The Weekend’, the latter of which is nominated for Radio X’s Record Of The Year 2022 – have made clear the band’s intentions to take down barriers, entangle the broad palette of their collective influences, and push to write their most sprawling and ambitious album to date. 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.
Seeing DMA’S lean further into their electronic influences, ‘Something We Are Overcoming’ is three minutes of high energy, heart-warming bliss.
“’Something We Are Overcoming’ started as a moving ballad about perseverance but quickly morphed into a trancey anthem of a side quest that is slightly but steadily DMA’S. We hope you like it.” – DMA’S

As they near the release of their fourth LP, DMA’S last week announced a 15-stop run of stripped back and intimate shows in record stores across the UK. The Liverpool show sold out in 30 seconds flat, with Edinburgh not far behind, announcing a second show for the Scottish capital after only four minutes. Continuing this on-demand trend, the band also added nine additional UK / Europe shows to their April run which will now include Paris, Amsterdam, Germany, Ireland and Brussels, plus sets at UK festivals Live At Leeds In The Park, Tramlines, Truck Festival and Y Not Festival.
