Australian indie/alt-pop trio daste. has returned with their latest single, ‘Colours,’ following the success of their previous release ‘Around.’

daste. have released their latest single, ‘Colours.’ Co-written by Callum MacDonald, Braxton Tahi & James Vincent, the track was inspired by the UK band Easy Life and showcases daste.’s evolving lyrical and sonic creativity.

Callum MacDonald of daste. explains the inspiration and creative process behind the new single:

“When I started writing ‘Colours’ back in 2023, I was obsessed with 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.”
