Discovery: Dakota Avenue

Slap Me Silly is the latest single release from Dakota Avenue, a British modern rock band with an expansive sound.

By Jane Howkins

Whilst Dakota Avenue do seem to follow the traditional modern rock soundscape in terms of the vocals and the opening melodies, the music has a lot more going on within it, meaning you’ll need to take multiple listens to full appreciate everything. The vocals soar over the chorus in loving style, having a very soulful vibe to them. The effects make it all sound rather spacey, making them sound very different to their peers!
