First Listen: Slingshot Dakota – Lewlyweds

145_942_72An indie-rock victory lap out of hell, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania’s keyboard-and-drum duo Slingshot Dakota recount the horrors that delayed the domestic bliss of married life on “Lewlyweds.”

The second single from the band’s forthcoming LP, Break, “Lewlyweds” is fraught with neighborly insolence and parasitic infestation. While Carly Comando and Tom Patterson can almost laugh about it now, their suffering has made for great art.

Break, Slingshot Dakota’s third LP, will be released on 11 March. Following a slate of March tour dates including South By Southwest, Slingshot Dakota will embark on a full US tour beginning in Brooklyn on 1 April. See the full schedule below.
