DAIISTAR release debut album 'Good Time' alongside new video 'Parallel'  

Austin, TX noise-pop band DAIISTAR are today releasing their debut album ‘Good Time’, produced by Alex Maas of The Black Angels, and sharing a new video for ‘Parallel’. Pick it up on 180g coloured vinyl/CD here

Made up of Alex Capistran (guitar/vocals), 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. 

"To us these songs were a glimmer of light”, Capistran says of the new album: “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."

On ‘Parallel’, which follows the prior single releases ‘Tracemaker’, ‘Star Starter’ and ‘Repeater’, Capistran adds: “Sometimes I’ll be working on a song for weeks, other times I pick up the guitar and write nothing, but the songs that seem to emerge out of thin air always end up being my favorite. Parallel came to me instantly and has become one of the tracks I feel most connected to on the album. It’s a love song contrasted with fuzzed out guitar and driving rhythm. It’s about those days we find ourselves gliding effortlessly through time as two lives in unison and we can’t help but think ‘how is this real’.” 

In support of the record, out now via Fuzz Club the band are gearing up for a US tour with The Black Angels and The Dandy Warhols, Texas album release shows with Night Beats, and festival appearances at Desert Daze and Freakout.
