In the last year and a half, DICE have gone from WA bedroom rockers to catching and holding the attention of Aussie fans nationwide.
They’ve hit milestone after milestone and show no signs of slowing down – 1.6 million streams across only 8 songs. Multiple sold-out headline shows. 100k monthly Spotify listeners. Major playlisting success. And a consistent, loveable Aussie-rock sound that delivers each and every time. DICE have proven that they never miss the mark.
For a band only a year and a half old, they’ve firmly staked their sound and name as one that’s here to stay.
Their career trajectory has been full steam ahead, making it hard to remember a time when DICE weren’t slinging their signature open-air rock and buttery vocals with a sound in a familiar vein to favourites The VANNS, Spacey Jane and Beddy Rays.
Their most recent release was their debut 4-track EP ‘Adolescent Arcade’, which achieved 14 Editorial playlists between Spotify and Apple Music, and saw the band hit massive personal and career milestones like triple j Unearthed Feature Artist, rotation on Unearthed radio, an inaugural National tour and a slew of positive coverage and support from both community radio and editorial publications.
Following up this mammoth start to the year, DICE return with latest single ‘The Search’, a tastefully curated introspective song exploring the uncertainty plaguing young people these days.
“The Search explores the themes of uncertainty of the future ahead, which were heavily influenced by the ever changing COVID-19 restrictions in Western Australia. We also were influenced by climate change and the lack of action we see in today’s politics. This drove us to write a song where the meaning is deeper than previous songs we have written as we feel strongly about these issues.” DICE
The sonic strength of the band is translated from the strength and commitment to the team that surrounds them. As always, DICE have spent time in the studio with trusted collaborator and producer Sam Ford at Tone City Recording Studio (Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, POND & Abbe May) recording their latest single ‘The Search’.
This release is accompanied by what stands to be a killer launch show in Perth at The Rosemount on the 9th of July. Taking to the stage after their debut national tour brings a wash of excitement and familiarity for the band coming off the high that was a slew of East coast shows.
“The four of us are extremely grateful for having the opportunity to travel to the other side of Australia to play our tunes and we owe it all to the fans! Leaving the Perth music bubble was definitely daunting at first because of the tight knit community that has formed, however from the get go we felt right at home on the east coast. It was the most surreal and humbling experience to play infront of crowds where we knew not a single person” DICE.
Furthermore, DICE will be back on the road for another national tour in October supporting another esteemed Perth band for all stops.
It’s only a matter of time before we’re sprinting down the hill of a summer festival just in time to make DICE’s big free-wheeling rock. Full of excitement and possibility you can’t help but eagerly ask – what’s next?
