daste. are the Australian trio (with a very pleasing aesthetic) working their way towards their very first album, ‘dusk//dawn’. These are three electronically leaning creatives that kicked off the first year of their career in 2019 with their SOBER single, a song that promises sobriety for a sustainable relationship. Their recent single release, ‘Somebody Like You’, smoothly injects elements of soul and R&B into their already sophisticated soundscape. daste. admit that the enforced isolation (due to the COVID-19 outbreak in early 2020) meant they had to create an organic, creative writing space, with little stimulation.
Of the writing process, daste. say, “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.”
