Timeless is a great introduction to the album. The snappy riffs and lead singer Tommy O'Dell’s smooth vocals will instantly grab you. Lay Down, Delete and Too Soon are definitely standout singles. Delete is a slow acoustic gem and the catchiness of Too Soon is a hit perfect for the big stage. In The Moment is a slow burner with a huge injection of that aforementioned Brit Pop influence and one of the memorable on the album.
One of the more interesting tracks on the record is Melbourne; its spacy melody builds gradually and ends with a frantic rocky finish. One would hope to see it included in future set lists – the energy it projects would get any crowd excited. The last few tracks are dreamy, laid back and Play It Out is a fitting finale for an album that demands several spins on a lazy Sunday afternoon. 2016 looks to be a big year for DMA’s. In support of the album the band will be touring Australia with the Laneway Festival circuit in early February, following with a stint UK and North America including SXSW and Coachella.
"Hills End" is out on the 26th of February.
