Listening to the wall of sound that Slingshot Dakota are capable of producing you would be excused for thinking that the group is made up of at least three or four members, but the married couple of Carly Comando and Tom Paterson are the only band members. Comando deploys her heavily effected keyboard deftly, playing
melodies that would please the most ardent pop fans while also producing fuzzed out rhythms that many guitar based bands will be in awe of. Paterson’s drumming fills out the tonal mid-range on the record, and he shows great judgement in knowing when to be restrained and when to let loose.
