Austin noise-pop/alt/shoegaze band Daiistar have released their debut single “Tracemaker” alongside an accompanying music video.
Daiistar have just signed with U.K. label Fuzz Club who will release the band’s debut LP later this year, 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:
“There was a time in my life when I wanted to push the boundary of existence both physically and mentally. The memories I have of those days are vague and abstract just like the words written for Tracemaker, but when it’s all put together you begin to understand the meaning. It’s one of my favorite songs on the album and a good indicator of what’s to come from DAIISTAR. We are thrilled to set home base with FUZZ CLUB and can’t wait to share more with the world.”
