Sven B. Schreiber The music of "Slingshot Dakota" really has got some kind of addictive property! One essential factor certainly is the awesome keyboard work of Carly Comando, known to be the hell of a piano player and composer, who is treating the output of her gear heavily with various effects pedals. This creates an unique overall sound, surprisingly lush for a vocals/keys + drums duo, and really hard to categorize in terms of genres. Favorite track: Tour Song.

Andreas Odendahl The sweetest couple in music with lovely weird-keyboard-drum-noise-catchy-singalongs. This is very original music and I fell in love with it. Favorite track: Ohio.

The arguments seem endless And you’re wondering when I’m staying home And I think that home is where the heart is, And my heart is every highway, every city, Every street corner that I have yet to see We’ll never be what you want us to be We’ll never leave all this behind We’ll never be what you want us to be, And it’s alright My best friend, he wrote, “We are more than final etchings on a headstone. We are more than this song could ever say” So let’s follow our hearts and make something of ourselves We’ll never be what you want us to be We’ll never leave all this behind We’ll never be what you want us to be, And it’s alright 'Cause we are more than this song could ever say Let’s follow our hearts and make something of ourselves And it will be alright. Please let go Don’t hold on so tight. One day you’ll see that it’s alright to believe in yourself, That you can be anything

I just wanted to say That you are one of the few people To make me feel, to make me feel so beautiful So let’s go to Nevada, let’s go everywhere that we said we we’re gonna let’s leave these leaky pipes behind uncross our legs, unpack me from your mind lets throw our old clocks away We've got plenty of time, time I just wanted to say thank your for making me smile I just wanted to say thanks for driving while I sleep a while I just wanted to say we have our whole lives ahead of us I just wanted to say that we’re not going anywhere We've got plenty of time, time We've got our whole lives ahead of us We’re not going anywhere I’m gonna love you 'til the day I die

Ohio 04:03
Miles away from here Is a place dearest to our hearts You built the strongest city around With nothing but yourselves While others go to sleep to dream of something better You do your best to make your biggest dreams come true With voices ringing through living walls and windows you woke You woke the whole town up I fell in love with Ohio I fell in love with Ohio I fell in love with Ohio Look what you have done Look what you have done The doors are wide open You made a home for everyone While others go to sleep to dream of something better You do your best to make you biggest dreams come true With voices ringing through living walls and windows you woke You woke the whole town up I fell in love with Ohio I fell in love with Ohio I fell in love with Ohio While others sleep to dream You'll make your dreams come true While others go to sleep to dream We're singing in your living room

South 1st 04:09
Like the dust from our ancient ceiling Making its way to the ground We are falling And we held ourselves against the floodgates But it was already too late Deadbolt the door and move on There’s nothing left for us to say I gave you words You gave me your version of loving And now we’re giving each other up Was it really too much? Was it really too much to ask for? And who knew that time would break us? And who knew that time would be our only excuse? Everybody’s looking at you Everybody’s wondering how it feels to be without you We have nothing left to say We both fell a long time ago

I-78 03:36
The longest drive On the darkest highway To the brightest city and I have fallen asleep I didn't know that this would be our last drive Do we live for the heat of the moment Or do our dreams pass by without knowing? If you’re with me let’s get up and get going! C’mon let’s go, c’mon let’s go! At least we can say that we Crossed the Atlantic ocean together
6.
Wave 02:17
There is a wave And it’s 40 feet tall And we watch it crash together I’ve been dreaming the strangest dreams I guess it’s all these changes And we watch it crash together
7.
Let Go 03:27
Pull the knives out of our backs It’s time we let ourselves heal I think it’s time we let go There’s so much more to this There’s so much more than the notes we choose to sing And isn't it strange that we’re traveling the same speeds And isn't it strange that we’re traveling to the same places? There’s so much more to this There’s so much more than the notes we choose to sing I think it’s time we let go
8.
don’t think it would be fair To say that I understand Why you spend the day burying your head And we recall a time When our words meant so much I think they still do Because they have to resonate somewhere And we’re only getting older But that doesn't mean we stop believing And you say you’re comfortable here In the darkest room of a two story house But your pain is growing bigger I think it’s time to get out Before your heart gives in How can I love you ‘til the day I die If you chose to drink yourself to death? So take my hand and let’s get up! Take my hand and never stop believing And I know it’s not easy But we can try Take my hand and let’s get up! I’m going to love you ‘til the day I die.

Tour Song 04:37
The road has taken a toll on me And as I look at passing cars, I’m wondering If I could, would I do this all over again, Or would I do it without you? To follow my heart Means being alone for half the year Because it won’t be long ‘til we’re home again And we’re driving all night long, And we’re not gonna stop ‘til the sun comes up It won’t be long ‘til we’re home again

Lullaby 05:22
Your head is against the floor And I don’t know what to do I never knew what to do To say you’re strong is not enough to say what you are But to be completely honest, I don’t know what else to say Did you know you laugh exactly the same way? And every winter comes and it doesn’t get easier But you do the best you can So I sing this song to you To help you fall asleep.
