DMA’s manage to pump out the purest shoegaze indie songwriting on each and every release and ‘I Love You Unconditionally, Sure Am Going To Miss You’ is no exception, their reserves still far from running dry even after 2020’s full length LP ‘The Glow’.
1 Way launches the EP with a waterfall of Matthew Mason’s chiming guitars and Tommy O’Dell’s trademark angel-like vocals. We Are Midnight is the towering anthem of the record with a life affirming riff and gliding, evocative lyrics finding roundabout solace in being the darkness that contains light, or something. Viol is more subdued, or at least as subdued as DMA’s are able to get, with drums that could have come from The Strokes Hard To Explain, up until now the one part of the EP that sounds more The 1975 than The Stone Roses. Swansong Junk Truck Head Fuck strips everything away and leaves the bare bones of an acoustic guitar and a euphonic, fragile voiced apology to a mistreated lover.
