boisterous rock n roll – the heaviness of royal blood, an ear for Britpop-y tunes and some of what makes dma’s tick have all come together to create a wonderful cacophony.

‘A Better Life’ is a triumphant progression of their previous material and the sound of the band truly understanding their own power. It’s lyrically vivid, reflecting the bands’ concerns, ambitions and the hopes they have for their generation. The album artwork shows a communal family, all ages and backgrounds, in their vision of utopia, in a nod to the early 20th Century Woodcraft movement - who the band discovered while exploring idea of ‘A Better Life’. They were pioneers of a burgeoning modernity who called for universal suffrage, worker’s rights, sexual and racial equality. “It’s about unifying,” says Tarek. “Our generation is gonna be in charge one day. And I hope people’s morals outweigh any financial attractions in life.”
