Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Filipino-Australian artist daine is the new soundtrack for a disillusioned generation navigating life in an unforgiving world. Harbouring an almost obsessive passion for midwestern emo in the likes of Tigers Jaw, Sunny Day Real Estate, American Football and more, daine takes those references from the past and transposes them to something more future facing. Harnessing all the emotion that comes from those early 00s icons, Daine blends those wrought atmospheres with contemporary hip hop production and a saccharine vocal that provides a bittersweet edge. An artist born from a DIY ethos and an underground mentality, daine began writing music alone in their room after being inspired by shows from the likes of Turnstile, Basement, Jesus Piece and Code Orange, and credits the hardcore and metal scene in Melbourne for its camaraderie at a time when they felt isolated socially from those that they went to school with. Within their music, daine is writing their own personal diary, and the story is taking shape with every note.
