The Record Club: DMA's to discuss brand-new album How Many Dreams? and Number 1 battle

The Australian rockers will be hoping to score their first-ever UK chart-topper.

Australian pop rockers DMA's have been announced as the next guests on The Record Club with Bowers & Wilkins.

The trio - comprised of Tommy O'Dell, Matt Mason and Johnny Took - have just released their fourth studio album, How Many Dreams? a tight and compact 12 track LP, which sees the band stick to their indie-rock and Britpop revival roots, while also introducing electronic production into the mix. 

It's their boldest, freshest and definitely weirdest offering yet, mixing the mood of Oasis with a Chemical Brothers rave set. 

And How Many Dreams? has a lot to live up too - it's predecessor The Glow peaked at Number 4 on the Official Albums Chart in 2020, gifting DMA's their first-ever UK Top 10 record.

Now, they're aiming for the big one - Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart, although big releases by alt-rock supergroup boygenius (The Record) and pop auteur Melanie Martinez (Portals) will give the lads some stiff competition.
