New music: Dakota Beats – Crocodiles

Dakota Beats have unveiled a brand new track Crocodiles.

This soaring epic showcases the darker, more atmospheric sound that has come out of the latest recording sessions with producer Ryan Pinson, but the Black Country band have lost none of their trademark bite.

The track was recorded in old attic rooms above Newhampton Arts Centre in Wolverhampton, the venue where the band hosts their regular ‘Dakota Beats present’ series of gigs.

Frontman Dan Harris said: “We enjoy working with our producer Ryan Pinson and between us we came up with an idea of making some almost live recordings in a big, atmospheric room to try and recreate our live sound and produce something with tons of ambience and energy.”

Dakota Beats play their biggest Birmingham gig to date this Friday when they headline the O2 Academy 2 for a Brum Notes Presents show, with support from Dive Exit, City Lightz and The One Twos.

Dan added: “We just can’t wait to unleash what we’ve been working on and what better place to do that than B-Town!

“We have a huge show planned and are expecting a big crowd. We recognise that Birmingham is making big noises at the moment and although we will always be a Black Country band we’re happy to show Brum what we’re all about, and we’re confident they will like what they see and hear.”
