I was lucky enough to grow up in the same area as Slingshot Dakota
I was able to see them early on and then watch them over and over again. They are the song that gets in your head, the tune you hum over and over again, the melody you wish you wrote all at once.
The live experience of Slingshot Dakota is extremely intimate.
I always felt closer to them as people by the end of their set, and how could you not? They are sharing personal topics and its being driven home by a very passionate performance.
I have always had a soft spot for them in my heart. But the new record they just released, HEAVY BANDING, is, in my opinion, the absolute best thing they’ve arranged to date.
Musically the ebbs and flows are perfect. Sonicly, it hits so hard.
This release gives me chills at points, makes me overwhelmingly emotional at others.
Something really awesome about this band is how open and honest they are. If you want to dive more into that please check out this awesome documentation of their lives here at A Sound You Can’t Ignore.
I seriously love what these two do together and I am so happy I have another perfect record from them.
Be sure to check them out on tour, Here is a handy flyer to keep you up to date and at their shows.
