DMA’S collaborate with local artists on upcycled vinyl art project
Sydney indie trio DMA’S have shared details of a new sustainable art project celebrating the anniversary of last year’s third album The Glow.
THE GLOW UP project sees the band enlist the talents of four Australian artists to create works out of 36 copies of The Glow that had their record sleeves damaged in transit to their label’s warehouse, with I OH YOU salvaging each tri-colour record from the damaged packaging to reuse for the project.
The artists involved in the project, including Arkie Barton, Leif Podhajsky, Matty D’arienzo and Serwah Attafuah, were then each given nine blank vinyl sleeves to create their own unique artwork.
Each upcycled artwork THE GLOW UP can be viewed in a virtual exhibition hosted by DMA’S, with all 36 individual sleeves going on sale on Wednesday, July 7 to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the record.
DMA’S are embarking on a tour behind The Glow this September.
The band was recently nominated for three awards at the 2021 AIR Awards, including Independent Album Of The Year, Best Independent Rock Album, and Best Independent Dance, Electronica or Club Single.
