Sydney producer Donatachi follows up their emphatic album in powerful manner with the release of their new single ‘fade away’, a emo-rock inspired offering that sees BESTIES enlisted on collaborative duties for what is a swift and buzzing release that will have something for everyone with its wide-ranging appeal on display
‘fade away’ brings the driving energy to the surface immediately with a heavy reliance on distorted guitars, which is met with the swift electronic percussion that sees the best of both artists on display. With BESTIES‘ emotionally fuelled melodies standing tall in the centre of the mix, Donatachi meets the passion on display with a high energy chorus that showcases plenty of grit and rebelliousness within.
“After being so encouraged by the love and support I’d received for donatachi.com, I started thinking about how much energy I was putting into my music. I wrote about feelings that I wasn’t giving it my all and about a fear that everything I’d worked for might eventually fade away. I owe so much to everyone who has supported me over the years and I wrote this song in gratitude and recognition of the ones who haven’t given up on me. I did this with besties because I love the potency in their writing and Max’s impassioned performance conveyed everything I was feeling but in the most perfectly energetic way.” – Donatachi
