Slingshot Dakota

Info:

Slingshot Dakota is an indie rock band from Bethlehem, PA. Comprised of two people, this band has no shortage of volume, energy and catchy tunes. Carly Comando shreds an 88-key digital piano through multiple effects pedals and provides vocals for the band. Drummer Tom Patterson keeps the beat while energetically crushing his drums, a sight that is both entertaining and inspiring. While Comando and Patterson are influenced by their respective punk and hardcore basement scenes, their music can be described as poppy indie rock. Their live sound is loud, full and raw, but at the root of it all is an addictive rock song.

Press:

"On latest single, "You," Comando nimbly bounds across the keys while maintaining a sturdy foundation of chunky bass and distortion; Patterson buoys the fuzz with brisk rhythms."
-Rolling Stone

"It’s a record that doesn’t shy away from the potential for fracture in our lives, but it also doesn’t dwell on that possibility. It approaches love on a scale that doesn’t tip too cynical or idealistic."
-Stereogum (on "Break")

"When you see Slingshot Dakota, often on a bill with three or four punk or hardcore bands, it’s an experience in contrasts to watch such powerful and moving music come out of a two-piece."
-NOISEY

"Dark Hearts deals a lot with getting through hard times, the loss of loved ones, coping with grief and struggles. But it channels those feelings into singalong refrains, bright melodies, danceable tempos; stuff that sounds as great when they played it live as it does on the album.”
-WXPN

"There's something about "Lewlyweds" that makes the song's tone difficult to pin down, a notion between burying the past and knowing what's lost."
-NPR
