The Aussie trio have revealed why having the seal of approval from the former Oasis rocker is reassuring.

DMA'S have discussed the "great" support they have from Liam Gallagher.

The Australian three-piece - which features Tommy O'Dell, Matt Mason and Johnny Took - have previously been regularly compared to Oasis and love having the "seal of approval" from the band's former frontman.

Matt Mason told the Daily Star: "Liam is a fan so it's good to have his seal of approval.

"If people say you're ripping off this band then they turn around and tell you that 'you suck' that's probably heartbreaking, but to get these Oasis comparisons and for him to like us is great.

"It makes you feel less of a d*** when the Godfathers approve."
