New Dakotas Launch New Album on Bandcamp


Boston area based Indie Band New Dakotas is composed of brilliant artists, not just musically but all band members attend Harvard and Tufts. This Indie-Pop-Rock band is led by Alasdair MacKenzie and Charles Winston. They perform as a duo as well as a four-piece band, with Trevor LaVecchia on guitar and Chris Haley on bass.

Influences include Ben Folds, Big Star, Fleet Foxes, and they have just released an EP, which you can stream and download here: and here on IndiePulse Music.

The latest release, self-titled New Dakotas is a pleasantly introspective collection and if this is just the beginning of what they offer, then I truly believe good things are to come. The first song is Roll it Later, a mirth like samba and calypso infused guitar strong piece that beckons a toe tap, I Can’t Spin It, is open and flamboyant, very folk oriented and just plain good to hear. Warming Song just feels like the winter scene on the cover, it is masterful in its emotion and organically lively. The EP is finished up with Turn My Head Around, which could be the new “Lost Simon and Garfunkel” track, this group could easily been a major act in the late 60’s / early 70’s, but I am glad they are here today.

Got to their Bandcamp page, buy the EP for what you can spend, but support these artists, their heart and soul lives in this album.
