DMA’S release the beautifully dark and euphoric track ‘Life Is A Game Of Changing’, the second single to drop from their recently announced third studio album ‘THE GLOW’ which is due for release Friday 24thApril.
Inspired by the early 90s rave scene, ‘Life Is A Game Of Changing’ is a nod to bands like Underworld, New Order, Orbital and The Chemical Brothers and furthers the DMA’S incorporation of digital beats and sequencers in their songwriting process.
The track started life as a demo recorded above the Botany Bay Hotel while Johnny and Mason were living upstairs, it didn’t find it’s place on the band’s previous two albums but became the band’s entrance song at gigs. The song’s time finally came when Johnny was living in Edinburgh, writing for ‘THE GLOW’ and came back to the bones of the track and fleshed out the idea, then brought it back to Mason & Tommy to add their parts and finish off ‘Life Is A Game Of Changing’ as a song.
2019 saw the Sydney natives put the final touches on their third studio album, play sold out shows across the UK and Ireland, support Liam Gallagher’s UK arena tour and sell 5 thousand tickets to their March 2020 Brixton Academy show in less than 24 hours.
This year, the band will play 2 headline London dates next week including an Australian bushfire benefit gig to raise funds for Wildlife Victoria at ULU.
They’ll then go on to headline Manchester’s Sounds of the Cityfestival (with 8000 tickets selling out in a couple of hours), Live At Leeds Festival, Hit The North Festival and are main support for Gerry Cinnamon at Hampden Park, Glasgow.
Following that they will return to the UK in October for their biggest London headline show to date at Alexandra Palace.
