The right music can instantly enhance any mood or situation. Today, we’re excited to share the perfect night-in soundtrack, brought to us by our newest addition to the site, Australian trio, daste.. Their new EP, Same As It Ever Was, is a mood and a half, stacked to the brim with sensuous late night vibes that will have you feeling yourself and then some.
This four track EP burns slow and hot, punctuated by dream-inducing orchestration of distorted guitars, synths, chimes, passionately crooning vocals and the subtle but splendid addition of a harp to teleport listeners to a smokey cloud nine. Speaking on the composition of this impassioned project, the band stated:
“The first track we wrote was ‘Telephone (What’s Your Name?)’, which felt very moody compared to our previous releases but also quite fresh and familiar at the same time.… The song is written from the perspective of someone who feels a certain way about a person but can’t express it and let them know. You’re head over heels for this person, but they may not even know your name. Now you’re making up scenarios in your head about the two of you together. It’s a bit of a creepy take to be honest which comes across nicely in the instrumentation of the track… This ended up shaping the mood of the EP, taking the sound into a darker and more mature space.”
This dark sultry offering is the perfect late night mood music. Whether you’re having a night with a special someone, or just in need of some alone time with a drink or a smoke, daste.’s new EP, Same As It Ever Was, will set the perfect tone. Stream below via Mammal Sounds Records. Enjoy!
