Over the last few months Australian trio daste. have been busy working on their debut album. This week they've shared the first peek at that with their new single, "either way", a smooth downtempo R&B track showcasing the trio's tastes.
"either way" was co-written with Sydney artist Maina Doe after .daste met her at Sydney Electronic Music Conference 2019. Through thoughtful collaboration they put down chords that explored sounds of both light and darkness within their respective styles. Both the lyrics and message of the song were able to flow from the atmosphere. daste. shares in a statement, "it’s about recognizing those troubles and taking them in your stride, because even though it feels like everything might not be going the way you expected or maybe the worst day you’ve had in a while, the sun will rise either way."
daste. kicked off 2020 with the release of their second EP Same As It Ever Was which was warmly received by listeners and made the trio one to watch. While daste.’s debut album dusk/dawn is slated for release in mid-2021, in the time head we can expect to see a tidy collection of lead-singles, the just-released "either way" surely included.
"either way" by daste. is available on all platforms now via Believe Music. Stay up to date with their socials below for upcoming singles and their forthcoming album dusk/dawn.
