Sydney’s DMA’s have just won my personal award for best cover of the year, picking Madonna‘s random early ’00s hit Beautiful Stranger from the Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me soundtrack. To be honest though, they kind of won on song choice alone.
Lending itself surprisingly well to the boys’ shoegazey brit pop treatment, the lads absolutely nail it ,recording live for Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 program.
Still touring in support of their first album Hills End, DMA’s are currently in the US playing SXSW as well as a spot on The Late Show With Steven Colbert.
The cover also comes, coincidentally enough, as Madonna is in Australia touring the nation playing arena shows on the east coast.
Listen to the DMA’s cover for yourselves here, below.
