Just a few months ago we introduced the world to a new Australian trio called daste via Mammal Sounds Records with their debut single ‘Thinkin’ Of’, and we’re excited to be kicking-off another huge year of label releases with daste’s second release, ‘SOBER’.
“We didn’t anticipate the reception it got when we released ‘Thinkin’ Of’, and it really told us to continue being ourselves in our approach. We do all the production ourselves which can be quite daunting at times, but we always enjoy the challenge and authenticity of being ‘homemade’. – daste
Just like its predecessor, ‘SOBER’ is going to turn many heads with its warm, infectious, electro-funk sounds, as they impress us all yet again with their remarkable song-writing and production skills.
“We don’t follow any specific recipe approaching each track. It all evolves from a hive mind of ideas and refining them into the mood we’re feeling. ‘SOBER’ came about quite quickly. Pretty much within a day of writing the basis of the song was done, and we then started doing our thing on the production which is often when we like to take our time focusing on the smaller details. As Tyler likes to say “The ‘d’ in daste. stands for detail.The ideation of ‘SOBER’ isn’t exactly in relation to being under the influence in anyway. I think ultimately it speaks to the sense of, not being intoxicated, but rather, having a clear mind from anything taking you away from yourself. The track speaks to us in our experiences, but we hope each person can interpret it differently.” – daste
Whatever way each of us interprets the meaning behind ‘SOBER’, I’m certain it will relate to us all in the very same way; it’s going to make us feel good, happy and free – let’s all get sober and flow with the groove.
‘SOBER’ is available everywhere now via Mammal Sounds Records.
