Watch Slingshot Dakota’s asskicking Audiotree Live set
Bethlehem punk duo Slingshot Dakota wrapped by going on a U.S. tour with their New Jersey neighbors in Prawn, and on the way through Chicago on December 14th, they stopped through to record an asskicking live set for the good folks at Audiotree.
Singer / keys queen Carly Commando and drum machine Tom Patterson rock through a five-song set, featuring “Paycheck,” “Doreen” and the title track from 2016’s excellent Break; they also performed “Rasta Bacca” from 2012’s Dark Hearts; and “Grudge” from last year’s Broken EP.
They also chat with Audiotree about their origin story, not only as a band but as a married couple, and get their perspective on balancing their creative work-life and their romantic couple-life. They also talk influences from punk and hardcore to James Taylor and Carly Simon.
The band does not have any shows at the moment, but explains why — as Commando tells it, they are demoing their record, and “spoiler alert: new record is amazing.” We can’t wait to hear it. Meantime, watch the Audiotree session below.
