daine has shared a new single, ‘boythots’.
The track follows up on last month’s offering ‘Dragging’, and is produced by hearteyes.
daine’s debut project ‘Quantum Jumping’ was released back in April.
“I’m trying to resist the idea that artists have to be influencers who are relatable and vulnerable,” she told us at the time. “I am vulnerable, but at the end of the day, daine as an artist persona and not as myself, is a project. It’s an entity, and it’s not who I am in my day to day life, and I don’t think anyone’s artist persona reflects who they are. I don’t want to blur the two.
“Growing up from the early 2000s to now, there’s this huge part of magic in music that we’ve lost because artists are forced to be so relatable and human. I also think it creates a huge culture of disrespect in stan culture – people will tear apart artists that they make fan accounts for. I just hate that pressure of having to be so accessible to everybody. It ruins the magic. There’s got to be something magical and intangible about a project because that’s what gets people excited.”
