daine’s ‘sleepwalking’ Has A Dreamy Feel

It's a shoegaze twist from the Charli XCX protege...

Melbourne pop rule-breaker daine has shared new song ‘sleepwalking’.

The future-pop force built colossal hype across an 18 month span, with a furry of single releases leading to her debut project ‘Quantum Leaping’. A lawless seven-tracker, it found the artist – co-signed by Charli XCX – operating free from boundaries, constructed what she termed a “tombstone to her adolescence”.

But the innovation doesn’t stop there. Dreamy new single ‘sleepwalking’ is a somnambulist slice of ultra-chill digi-pop, one that moves away from the glare of ‘Quantum Leaping’ towards something more subtle.

The raw colour is still there, with Lonelyspeck’s production adding textured aspects of nuance; Brevin Kim and hearteyes supply additional production, with blvu contributing guitar.

Further expanding her borders, there’s a quiet beauty to ‘Sleepwalking’ that impresses with its subtlety.
