"This comes from an alternate universe where Morrissey grew up beside the beach, which sounds like a universe I'd like to inhabit." – Dom Alessio (Triple J)
cute introductory line about diet...
DIET. are five best mates who love nothing more than brewing up their unique blend of indie pop and surf music.
Since forming in 2014, the Melbourne based band has released a handful of songs receiving nationwide and global attention. The debut single, 'Your House', found itself added to various Spotify curated playlists such as Fresh New Finds (US) and Musica Do Dia (Brazil), and received a premiere on Dom Alessio's Home & Hosed Triple J program. Their follow up, 'The Rip', followed suit with nationwide community radio airplay.
During the lifetime of DIET., the boys have enjoyed sharing stages with some of Australia's most promising acts such as, Alex Lahey, Slum Sociable and Big White, amongst others.
In October 2016, DIET. released their debut self-titled EP independently, and played to a sold out crowd in Melbourne. The consequent wave of momentum brought the boys to throw another party (at a sold out rooftop gig) to promote the bookend track of the EP, titled 'VB' (an omen to the refreshing taste of Victoria Bitter). 'VB' was placed on high rotation on Triple J Unearthed Radio, and the boys did a stint in Sydney and Melbourne to celebrate.
So far in 2017, the DIET. lads have entered the studio with acclaimed engineer/producer, Dan Caswell (Dune Ratesm Flyying Colours, The Living End) at The Alamo studios, and have recently placed the finishing touches on a number of singles ready for release throughout the year.
Melbourne larrikins DIET. have channeled the yearning for a sunshine filled romance with their new single 'Take Me'.
Following their ode to the classic Aussie tradition of streaking in 'Clothes Off', the surf jangle, five-piece have written a heartfelt adolescent plea to a love interest, at the tail end of a beach party. Nostalgic synthesisers and playful guitar lines (influenced by The Smiths and The Cure) make for an affectionate and sweeping overture.
"They’re one of the tightest and most entertaining live bands you’ll find." – Tone Deaf
"What does an Australian summer sound like? The ebb of the ocean or the whine of a mozzie? Or maybe it’s infectious, sunny, jangly rock songs, tinged with nostalgia for holidays past. It’s the sound that new Melbourne band DIET. makes." - Broadsheet
