DMA’S version of Cher’s ‘Believe’ has today been voted #1 in triple j’s highly anticipated Hottest 100 of Like A Version countdown. It marks a massive accolade for the Sydney band, following seven years of ‘Believe’ finding its way into the hearts of countless fans around the world.

DMA’S covered ‘Believe’ for triple j Like A Version back in 2016, and it has since reached an iconic status in popular culture – amassing a whopping 12.5M streams on YouTube, and reaching 2x ARIA Platinum status in Australia, with over 40.5M streams on Spotify alone.
Splendour In The Grass in 2018 to a massive crowd reaction, and it’s remained an anchor of their euphoric live set since.

The huge honour comes off the back of the band’s fourth studio LP How Many Dreams?, which saw DMA’S play to adoring crowds across UK/Europe, including a sold-out show at London’s OVO Arena Wembley and the main stage of Reading & Leads Festival. The band landed their highest chart debut ever, peaking at #2 on the ARIA charts and a momentous #3 on the UK Official Album Charts, marking DMA’S second top 5 UK Chart debut – a feat only a handful of Australian artists have achieved, the likes of Kylie Minogue, ACDC and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.
To celebrate today’s momentous moment, DMA’S’ long-time record label I OH YOU has announced a flash sale on DMA’S How Many Dreams? Limited Edition Yellow vinyl, running from this Monday 17 July until midnight Sunday 23 July.
In September/October, the band will embark on their biggest Australian tour to date, playing a massive 18 shows across 16 cities and towns. Tickets for all shows are on sale now via frontiertouring.com/DMAS.
DMA’S continue to prove they are a force to be reckoned with. Taking home #1 in triple j’s Hottest 100 of Like A version is a true testament to the immense power of their fanbase, and the open-armed response they elicit both at home and on international shores.
