Disconnecting from someone can often be the best move you can make, but that doesn't mean it hurts any less. In the end, daine's confident that she's going to be OK, asserting that,<em> "You feel things you can't escape, but I think I'm alright on my own</em>".</p> <p>The track was produced by Lonelyspeck, while blvu plays guitar on the track. Brevin Kim and hearteyes also contributed additional production. The song sits snugly in the worlds of shoegaze and hip-hop, and it's a captivating listen. It's an exciting time to be a daine fan.</p> <p><em>sleepwalking </em>follows on from the release of daine's debut project <em>Quantum Jumping</em>, which daine described as a “tombstone to her adolescence”. The project is an insight into where her sound came from, while <em>sleepwalking </em>is a glimpse of where her sound's going.</p> <h3><strong><a href="">READ MORE: Why The Future Of Hyperpop Is In Australia</a></strong></h3> <p>daine's been busy playing live shows in 2022, performing both in Australia and overseas.
