Bio

"Influenced by their surroundings and drawing inspiration from acts like Incubus, Kings of Leon and Cold War Kids, these guys are producing some of the most exciting indie rock we’ve heard in this second half of the year." - ToneDeaf

Hailing from tropical Darwin, indie-groovepop band At The Dakota have established themselves as one of the most exciting bands to come out of the Northern Territory with their addictive pop sensibilities and hooky melodies. Their songs are unapologetically groovy, they celebrate good times and their lyrics are refreshingly cryptic.

At The Dakota have forged a solid fan base in the NT, winning the People’s Choice Award in the 2015 NT Song of the Year Awards and being voted by the public as the local act for the 2016 and 2018 BASSINTHEGRASS Festival.

They’ve also supported touring acts such at British India, The Rubens, Ball Park Music, Saskwatch and The Bennies and have gone on several national tours.

“At the Dakota definitely bring something fresh, new and inspiring to our community. With a cool, chilled sound that reflects the lifestyle of Territorians, At The Dakota are definitely on the rise and a band to follow.” Foldback Magazine

In 2015 At The Dakota released their debut EP ‘Stories’ featuring the award winning single ‘Stumptail’ (NT Song of the Year) and Hot100 Darwin Feature Track ‘Peach Hat’. Stumptail also featured on Spotify’s Australian 'Indie Mixtape' playlist and the music video for the track was picked up by Rage. 2016 saw the band release the single ‘Rat King City’ and smash an Australian tour – including representing the national Northern Territory Tourism campaign at a pop up event in Melbourne Federation Square.

I love how rocky this is, but then it holds that strong synth in the back. Cool.

That vocal is right up front and really draws your attention to the summery vocal and clean melody
