About Slingshot Dakota:
CarlyComando and Tom Patterson are two people who carry the weight of an entire band. Their set-up is simple: Carly is on keys and Tom plays drums. They do things with these instruments that most bands can’t do with a standard set up: they cram the sonic space they are in. Originally this was actually the case as they began as a three-piece featuring Jeff Cunningham and Letterman’s Pat Schramm. But narrowing it down to a duo in 2006 did no harm; Carly’s keyboard seems to take on the role of several more people as it adds multiple dimensions to their sound.
2008’sTheir Dreams are Dead, but Ours is the Golden Ghost was a seminal release for their entry onto the scene. With Carly from Long Island and Tom from the Lehigh Valley (PA), their home-turfs both came with built-in popular support as they romped the DIY all-ages show circuit. In it, they blew away audiences with their at-times more sober lines like “I’m gonna love you till the day I die” juxtaposed with moments of their swelling pop sound. When Tom isn’t screen-printing (he does everything from gig posters to commercial ventures to fine art) and Carly isn’t music licensing, they are refining their highly-anticipated album, Dark Hearts, set to come out this year.
