Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, rising blues/rock outfit Dakota Jones have been described as having ‘the hell-hath-no-fury power of Chaka Khan, the wild spontaneity of Janis Joplin, and the honey-dripping sensuality of Marvin Gaye.‘ If you like the sound of that check out I Did It To Myself, the first single from their debut album coming this summer.
Opening with the line “Stretch marks from growing pains” lead singer and songwriter Tristan Carter-Jones laments the woes of adjusting to adulthood, with her husky and commanding vocal instantly asserting its place in the spotlight.
“I Did It To Myself is about the ups and downs of learning and growing up, and the mess that can ensue,” says Tristan. “Maybe I’m going too fast and too hard, maybe I need to slow down. But if things get messed up at least, this time, I have no one else to blame. I did it to myself.”
One to watch we think. The album Blacklight is out August 27th
