This time last year, DICE released their debut EP. The band was fifteen months old, had 1 Million streams and hadn’t played a show outside of WA.
Now, one year later they release their sophomore EP ‘Time Will Tell’, sit at over nineteen million streams, and are about to embark on their third Australian tour with shows selling-out nearly three months in advance. With a #133 in the triple j Hottest 200 for previous single ‘Double Espresso’, widespread community radio support and even a #1 most played song on triple j in February, they celebrate their break-out, career-defining year and firmly stake their position as Australia’s premier indie-rock outfits.
‘Time Will Tell’ is a five-track collection of songs that traverses relatable worries, joys, and uncertainty, exploring the often disorienting process of finding your feet as a young adult. Featuring previous hit singles ‘Eyes Ahead’ and ‘Stockholm’, the EP includes unreleased tracks ‘Silky Blends & Lemonade’, ‘Pieces’ and ‘Tough Love’, showcasing the sonic diversity of a band that has hit their stride.
It is a pure distillation of everything DICE has become known for - warm toned vocals, stadium ready choruses and electrifying instrumentation that can brighten any day.
Speaking about the new EP, the band said, “'Time Will Tell' was constructed over a period of 6 months, over countless jams from the couches on tour late at night to bouncing ideas off each other at sound checks before shows. We wanted to show a more sonically adventurous side of DICE, reflecting on experiences over the past twelve months where uncertainty was a key feeling for all of us, however having each other’s backs through thick and thin was at the forefront of our minds. These feelings translated into the majority of our writing, with lyrics being deeper from the get-go and the instrumentation complimenting the feelings portrayed through the lyrics.”
Since their inception in 2021, DICE have delivered consistent top tier indie rock tunes that encapsulate the carefree joy of a summer's day. They are signed to Tone City Records (DICE, Nectar, Siobhan Cotchin, Supathick), where their long and trusted history of collaboration with Sam Ford was made official. Like previous releases, ‘Time Will Tell’ was mixed and mastered at Tone City Studios by Sam Ford (POND, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, Birds Of Tokyo, Abbe May).
