Throughout 2021 Australian outfit daste. have shared a string of outstanding singles (including collaborations with DVNA, Uhkirra and Akurei), while also teasing their fans with the promise of their long-awaited debut album coming very soon. The Gold Coast trio are now making good on that promise as they deliver dusk&dawn, an exquisite 10-track collection featuring four previously unheard tracks that help tie this musical journey together. Tyler and Braxton give us their insight into the album below as they explore the contrast of the dusk and dawn theme that the album was built around.
“What dusk&dawn means to me is a journey of realisation. Throughout this album I discovered a lot about our sound and identity. Each song on this album portrays a character we all relate to some way or another. As for our sound, I feel like nothing really changed, we just grew. And we’ll continue to grow with more albums, more songs, and more journeys.” -Braxton Tahi
“dusk&dawn represents the duality of life: good and bad, life and death, happiness and sadness. It is the contrast between the two that helps you appreciate and provide the context for the parts of life that you cherish, which is a never-ending cycle, just like the rising and falling of the sun. We featured the sun in all of the single release artworks and in the album artwork.” -Tyler Harden
