Austin noise pop band Daiistar are today announcing their debut album, ‘Good Time’, and sharing the new single and video ‘Star Starter’. The album is out Sep 8 and available to pre-order as an exclusive Fuzz Club edition on 180g vinyl and CD here
On the new single, DAIISTAR’s Alex Capistran (guitar/vocals) writes: "I was messing with some congas on logic and accidentally dropped them into a track with a synthesiser plugin. When I played it back it sounded great and thought it was perfect for Star Starter, so I moved it into key and that’s how the intro came to be. Kind of a serendipitous moment. Another good memory I have from those sessions is of Cornetti going full speed on tambourine for a few takes, it was a marathon and quite entertaining to watch. We enjoyed making this song and we’re happy to finally share it."
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. Their debut studio album, 'Good Time', was produced by Alex Maas of The Black Angels and engineered by James Petralli of White Denim.
On their incoming debut, Capistran adds: "To us these songs were a glimmer of light. Starting a band at the peak of the pandemic to some might seem ill timed, but to us it was a way to escape for a moment. There was something to look forward to and we kept our heads in the future. These songs guided us through some dark times and hopefully they can do the same for you. GOOD TIME is here."
