Over the last few months Australian trio daste. have given us two incredible new singles, ‘either way’ and ‘somebody like you’, while also making promise of their debut album, “dusk / dawn”, coming our way in 2021.
As they continue to build anticipation for that album, daste. are now giving us their next single ‘here with me’, which features the guest vocals of fellow Gold Coast artist DVNA.
When put alongside their previous single ‘somebody like you’, ‘here with me’ takes us on a slightly moodier and emotionally driven journey, but as band-member Tyler Harden explains below, it is a song about hopefulness and keeping your loved ones close.
“Here With Me was written on a rainy night during quarantine last year. I wrote the chords and some basic melodies from the verse and chorus, then brought what I had to the rest of the group. We went all in and essentially had the whole song ready to show DVNA in one session. Here With Me is about wanting to hold somebody close and forgetting about all of the other problems in life, because when you’re together you are the strongest.” – Tyler Harden (of daste.)
