Today Austin band DAIISTAR have signed with the UK label Fuzz Club who will release the band’s debut LP later this year. The band has also shared the official video for their debut single, “Tracemaker” ahead of their appearance at this year’s Austin Psych Fest.
“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.” -Alex / DAIISTAR
DAIISTAR is a noise-pop / shoegaze band formed in Austin, Texas in the spring of 2020. The band takes their 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. DAIISTAR recently recorded their first studio album produced by Alex Maas of The Black Angels and engineered by James Petralli of White Denim, “Tracemaker” is their debut single from the album which is also available as a lathe cut single with a cover of Primal Scream’s “Burning Wheel” on the b-side.
