SOMETHING WE ARE OVERCOMING
HOW MANY DREAMS? LP // 31 MARCH
HEADLINE TOUR // INSTORES & SIGNINGS
DMA’S have shared 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 tracks from the album – I Don’t Need To Hide, Olympia, Fading Like A Picture and Everybody’s Saying Thursday’s The Weekend, which is nominated for the Radio X 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 rediscovery for the band, resulting in a record that is the grand sum of every part of who DMA’S are.
Seeing the band lean further into their electronic influences, SOMETHING WE ARE OVERCOMING is three minutes of high energy, heart-warming bliss. “It started as a moving ballad about perseverance,” say the band, “but quickly morphed into a trancey anthem of a side quest that is slightly but steadily DMA’S. We hope you like it.” Watch the accompanying video here
