“Ridiculously catchy” – The AU Review
“Tasty guitar hooks, reminds me of Two Door Cinema Club. Would jump around to this” – Bridget Hustwaite triple J
Northern Territory’s At The Dakota are proud to announce a huge national tour to celebrate their second EP Melt including stops in Darwin, Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney, Bendigo and Melbourne.
AT THE DAKOTA
Hailing from tropical Darwin, have established themselves as one of the most exciting bands to come out of the Northern Territory with their addictive pop sensibilities and hooky, quirky lyrics and melodies. At The Dakota’s sound is influenced by the warmth and optimistic attitude that epitomizes Northern Territory living. Their songs are unapologetically groovy, they’re catchy and energetic and their lyrics are refreshingly cryptic. The five-piece have supported The Rubens, The Bennies, Saskwatch and Ball Park Music, they won a People’s Choice Award in the NT Song of the Year and won the public vote to perform at the 2016 BASSINTHEGRASS Festival.
Longhaired and bright eyed 6 piece melodic groove machine The Zilzies have spent 2016 in a van wowing the lower East Coast of NSW. With two eclectic demo’s and a proven love to play live, the band have come leaps and bounds in the short time they’ve spent together. Thought provoking, reflective, and highly danceable, the sound oozes promise and simplistic wisdom. With an E.P. Coming in 2017 to be produced by Dylan Adams (Sticky Fingers, DMA’s), the next step for the band is in breaking out of the bedroom and expanding on the samples that saw their name climb the Triple J Unearthed Charts upon release.
In a music industry full of generic songs, and Aussie rappers there were 4 men with luscious hair, and glowing etiquette who set out on a musical adventure
