She's always going to weave different influences and different sounds together to create the music she wishes already existed.
The video for dainecore is just as captivating as the track, and it feels like you're watching an exorcism. The video, which was directed by Sean Finney, is set in a fog-filled room, where daine breaks through the smoke. As the smoke fades, fans are welcomed into daine's world, and you'll get a glimpse of her innermost thoughts.
