Austin noise-pop/alt/shoegaze band Daiistar have unveiled their new single “Repeater‘ and its accompanying video.
The track is s the second taste of their upcoming debut album ‘Good Time‘, produced by The Black Angels’ Alex Maas and engineered by James Petralli of White Denim, due out September 8th via Fuzz Club. Pre-order your copy here.
Commenting on the new single, DAIISTAR’s Alex Capistran shares:
“‘Repeater’ is a voyage through the darker side of the human consciousness. It’s common for people to mask what’s on the inside and in this track we travel beyond the exterior. The lyrics are minimal with the intent of focusing on the music itself and how it intensifies as the song progresses. On this track we journey inward only to find ourselves spiraling out in the end.”
Made up of Capistran, Nick Cornetti (drums), Misti Hamrick (bass) and Derek Strahan (keys),
DAIISTAR formed in the spring of 2020. Creating a narcotic blend of noise and melody, the band takes their inspiration from the neo-psychedelic era of the 80s and 90s and pulls it into the future with modulating synthesisers, heavy guitars, bouncing bass lines, and spiralling hooks.
