Grab a taste of daste.
Australian electro-funk trio daste first caught my eye at the start of the year with their single “SOBER”, making it onto our Tasty! Jams playlists for January. They followed up with the magnificent “Myself” last month before finishing the full picture today by bringing forth their highly anticipated debut EP Palette on Mammal Sounds Records, featuring two previously unheard lo-fi delights, “Overload” and “Palette.”
daste shared a few words on the new EP, saying “Following the release of ‘Thinkin’ Of’, the inevitable question of “what’s next” became the catalyst for the writing of Palette. With only one song behind our name we decided as a group the next best step would be to focus on our writing and production to create something truly special. As we worked and created demo after demo, we realised that it was impossible for us to approach each track with the same ingredients and recipe without becoming tired of ourselves… It became freeing to the group to stop narrowing our sound into one category and try every idea until we were happy. The lyrics followed suit as we drew on themes that highlighted our opinions of the music industry and our own approach. Realising the unique quality of each track, the concept of the EP was born–A palate of tracks, each with its own flavour to create the EP.”
You can find “Palette” on our Tasty! Jams playlists for May.
