Artist: Slingshot Dakota
Label: Topshelf Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 11 March 2016

Slingshot Dakota is an Indie Rock band from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Comprised of two people, Carly Comando shreds an 88-key digital piano through multiple effects pedals and provides vocals for the band, while drummer Tom Patterson keeps the beat while energetically crushing his drums. While Comando and Patterson are influenced by their respective punk and hardcore basement scenes, their music can be described as poppy Indie Rock...

Break is Slingshot Dakota's new album, a feel good pop-based Indie Rock/mild Punk album that is the perfect companion for summer driving.

The LP contains 9 songs (37 min, 23 sec) and opens on its most upbeat note, with the buzzing 'You'. Other highlights include 'Monocacy'; 'Lewlyweds' and 'Doreen' (easily the most enjoyable track on the album).

It's unusual to find a Rock/Punk outfit that puts such a feel good factor into their music. It's loud and brash in places, as well as soulful and reflective in other areas.
