Aussie indie rock band DMA’S have added their own flavour and tastes for fellow Toffees to listen to, with their takeover of the Everton FC Official Playlist on Spotify.
The takeover from the trio of Tommy O’Dell, Matt Mason, and Johnny Took comes ahead of the release of their third studio album THE GLOW on Friday 10 July.
With Tommy having grown up as a passionate Toffees fan and the band having headlined the club’s recent Lockdown Sessions – which raised thousands of pounds for local communities during the Coronavirus pandemic – it only made sense for them to link up with the club once more.
Ahead of Thursday’s Premier League clash with Southampton, DMA’S have provided the soundtrack for the build-up to kick off by adding their own flavour to the Everton FC Official Playlist, with tracks from personal favourites, to bands they have toured with and, naturally, one of their own new songs.
The playlist takeover is topped by ‘Criminals’, the trio’s latest single taken from their forthcoming album. The track was written during the last few days of the album recording sessions & perhaps the most surprising track on the record. It begins as a subtle piano based offering and builds quickly into an uplifting pop banger with a punchy, groove-focused hook.
Alongside ‘Criminals’, the playlist takeover features songs from musical icons The Stone Roses, Oasis, Bob Dylan and Gorillaz, plus tunes from newer artists such as Catfish and the Bottlemen, Sam Cooke and M.I.A..
SOUNDING SICK ON VINYL! ‘THE GLOW’ OUT THIS FRIDAY ❤️💚💙

THE GLOW was produced and mixed by Grammy award winning producer Stuart Price (Madonna, The Killers, New Order) in the historic Westlake Recording Studios, a long way from the bands early days in Sydney.
From their emotive heart to their towering hooks, the core traits that have earned DMA’S a huge following are still prominent in new album THE GLOW, but now their anthemic sound is infused with a euphoric flood of alt-pop flair with pulsating synths and taut beats. While the huge choruses will prove to be electrifying highlights of future live shows.
