At first glance it's easy to make the one-off assumption that Slingshot Dakota are some sort of Mates of State tribute act -- the male/female couple, the keyboard lead, the often cute-sounding songs all add to this. But if you dig slightly below the surface you find a band that is fully their own, even on a three-song demo CD...
Carly and Tom called everyone up on stage for some slow jams, which unfortunately ended with them ushering everyone back off. They are trying to win a contest over at Epitaph, so head over to the demo section and vote for them!
