Just a few weeks back, Australian trio daste. returned to the scene with a glorious new single called ‘Around’, which has been met with much praise and attention from fans and music curators across the globe.

‘Around’ was just the first taste of a whole new album that daste. have planned for release in early 2025, and this week they are giving us another glimpse at what we can expect with their next single ‘Colours’; a vibrant indie/alt-pop treat which they say was inspired by UK band Easy Life.

In more news, daste. are also announcing that they have a few Australian shows planned for August before heading off to North America for their debut headline tour throughout September/October with tickets going on sale this Friday, June 21st (TICKETS HERE) ~ check all the dates below! 

“When I started writing ‘Colours’ back in 2023, I was obsessed over the UK group Easy Life, and loved the way they used their lyrics to paint pictures and transport you to different places in your mind. Listening to them for so long encouraged me to think outside the box with lyrics within our own music and I started this song as an exercise to improve myself in that aspect.

A few weeks later, I was with Braxton, going through demos I had been making and once he heard ‘Colours’ he immediately wanted to work on it, helping add a new verse, and so many shiny vocals throughout the choruses. He really provided the song with the “colour” it needed; no pun intended.

Fast forward a few months and the song has grown sonically, and lyrically, into a love injected utopia where everything is saturated in colours and the mood is always just right. We were blessed to collaborate with our good friend Jim Alxndr who played saxophone throughout and provided the final mix.” ~ Callum MacDonald (of daste.)
