DMA’S have released a new remix of their single CRIMINALS by THE AVALANCHES, taken from their critically acclaimed third studio album THE GLOW, which was released last month and charted at an impressive #4 in the official UK albums chart. THE AVALANCHES recently released their first tracks since their last studio album in 2016 and have hinted at a new album. This DMA’S remix, the influential duo’s first since their Chemical Brothers mix in 2019, adds a fresh and original take on CRIMINALS with the synth pop deconstruction that only THE AVALANCHES could assemble.
“It was a real pleasure. Awesome melodies, awesome talent, awesome energy, I listen to DMA’S all the time. It was really nice to be given free reign and to let loose with some free-flowing old school vibes on this remix. Thank you, guys.” ROBBIE AVALANCHE
DMA’S new album THE GLOW is a mission statement that the trio immediately encapsulate within the opening two tracks. A swaggering mash-up of Screamadelica-era attitude, big beat dynamics and modern alt-pop flair, NEVER BEFORE instantly sets the tone. The title track then keeps the energy firing, a rapid rush of melodic energy, joyous optimism and a new-found confidence in Tommy O’Dell’s vocals. As suggested by SILVER, the first single from the album, DMA’S are expanding the scale of their sound. Yet DMA’S save the biggest surprise for last with COBRACAINE being a celebration of everything the band can be. It’s a maximalist melting pot of sounds: an escalating wall of guitars the foundation for a tense, almost trance-like beat with vocals filtered through harmonies and vocoders. And as the record hurtles to its mesmerising conclusion, one thing is certain: this is the most fully realised of the band’s three albums to date.
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 band’s 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 the new album, but their anthemic sound is now infused with a euphoric flood of alt-pop flair with pulsating synths and taut beats, while the huge choruses will prove be electrifying highlights of future live shows.
THE GLOW is available to purchase on CD, download and heavyweight vinyl as well as limited edition heavyweight tricolour vinyl through HMV and independent record stores. Exclusive merchandise bundles are available through the band’s store.
