It’s been a minute since we’ve heard the dream-inducing sounds of Australian outfit, daste., but rest assured, these guys have been hard at work. At the end of 2020, we premiered the first single, “either way,” from the trio’s debut album, dusk/dawn. Since then, they’ve rolled out two more exceptional samples, and today we’re excited to premiere the latest single titled, “expectations,” featuring guest artist, Akurei.
These guys never fail to deliver A-1 vibes. This latest offering finds its footing with a woozy guitar loop and soft reflective vocals before turning up the funk a bit in the second half with the help of Akurei. The group gave us a deep dive into the track’s message saying:
“‘Expectations’ is about stepping outside of the box that the world tends to put you in, and living for yourself instead of becoming what everybody expects you to be. Aline in the song that captures this perfectly is ‘these clothes don’t fit me right, can’t always fit your size.’ In life you often get given an outline that you are supposed to fit into, and most of the time it’s better if you let those expectations go and let your true self shine.”
This latest single has us drooling for June when dusk/dawn is set to release. Thankfully rumor has it that we’re in store for a few more singles between now and then. Stream daste.’s new track, “expectations,” below. Enjoy!
