Aussie trio daste. are back with another single “somebody like you,” a cheerily buoyant single that was born out of covid isolation. With its smoothly burning synths and smoky vocals, daste. manages to keep us in cloud 9 from start to finish. Taken from their upcoming debut album dusk / dawn, “either way” is a slick R&B treat:
Speaking of the song, daste.’s Callum MacDonald shared:
“This song came about shortly after everyone was coming to terms with the severe necessity of isolation. Not being able to leave the house forced us to start writing songs and ideas on our own which we could eventually work on together. I immediately felt as if I had writer’s block and decided to try making a beat every day in an attempt to break my creative struggle. ‘somebody like you’ was day 26 I believe…I had the beat, chords, verse and a pre-chorus and stopped there. A few weeks later, the three of us were able to get together and work on the ideas we all brought with us. Within a few listens of this particular idea, Tyler says ‘What if the chorus went like …Youuuuuuuuuu’ and at that point I knew we had something very cool going on. A few months later we had a writing session with Max (aka Golden Vessel) who came down to our Burleigh Heads studio. After a few hours of writing, we exchanged some unreleased music and were lucky enough to send Max the song to work on some additional production and provide the final seasoning.”
daste. will be supporting FELIVAND at The Zoo in Brisbane on February 26th.
