DMA's bring their Aussie interpretation of Britpop to the BBC Radio 1 Stage for half an hour of acoustic guitars, tambourines and 90s-indebted tunes. As the band open with ‘Too Soon’ a legion of bucket hats bob their way into the front of the tent and get to work shouting along to the band’s rabble-rousing songs.

‘The one from FIFA’ aka ‘Play It Out’ goes down a treat among the more casual listeners, while debut single ‘Delete’ delights the diehards at the barrier. Theirs is a well-trodden sound, but they’re clearly doing something right.
