Austin noise-pop/alt/shoegaze band Daiistar have dropped their cover version of Primal Scream 1997’s classic “Burning Wheel“.

The track i out now and follows on from their debut single “Tracemaker”, released earlier this month.

Daiistar‘s debut LP will be out later this year via Fuzz Club, produced by Alex Maas of The Black Angels and engineered by James Petralli of White Denim.

The band takes inspiration from the neo-psychedelic era of the 80s and 90s (The Jesus and Mary Chain, Spacemen 3, early Primal Scream), and pulls it into the future with modulating synthesizers, heavy guitars, bouncing bass lines, and spiraling hooks, creating a narcotic blend of noise and melody.

Vocalist/guitarist Alex Capistran says:

“We drove out to Bastrop TX, ate good food, had a couple margaritas, and recorded this version of ‘Burning Wheel.’ I loved the song the moment I saw Primal Scream perform it on Later with Jools Holland and knew we had to cover it. We had an exceptionally good time recording it and I hope Bobby Gillespie hears it someday.”
