Melbourne’s emo popstar daine exposed a new fantastic single ‘New Ground’ in the lead-up to her debut mixtape’s arrival March 18th
A rapidly ascending voice in the alternative and electronic pop scenes thanks to her output and her Nocturne online parties which have featured the likes of Charli XCX, Oklou, umru, and more, daine will finally release her debut mixtape Quantum Jumping on March 18th 2022.
A chronological timeline of the very first songs she wrote at the age of 16, the release charts a burgeoning artist growing in real-time, finding her own source of expression and finding her own space in a world she felt ostracized within. The latest taste of this forthcoming project is released today in the form of a new single, ‘New Ground’.
The track ranks among one of the more upbeat in daine’s canon, allowing her to spotlight another element of her songwriting talent while expanding the sonic landscape of what’s possible with her sound. Her signature reverberated guitar picks are offset by an uptempo drum track that is punctuated only by daine’s disaffected yet impactful vocal and a pair of blazing guitar solos that take the track to a powerful new level.
Pushing the boundaries of alternative music, pop, electronic sounds and more, daine’s genre-eschewing compositions are a perfect encapsulation of the boundless creativity at her fingertips. With her demand to subvert expectations only growing with each release, the possibilities on where she may go next are endless.
