DMAS-For-NowWell, 50 years of American music has been strip-mined to the point of boredom, so it’s not unreasonable that revisiting the UK’s cultural history would offer a richer vein.

Madchester, baggy, whatever references you want to throw out at DMA’S, there’s no doubt their love runs deeper than the tracksuited surface. For Now is exquisite nonsense. For Now is unabashed pop joy. The studied swells and jangling guitars tumble together into a blissful wave. Soft enough for the headphones, energetic enough to hint at something more, it could go from floor to festival just by turning up the volume. Pulling out lyrics would be perverse; taken together, For Now is a sweet pill.

For Now is out April 27 via I OH YOU/Mushroom.
