Review: 'Arrow Holder' – At the Dakota

Local band At the Dakota have come out with a brand new single that is set to light up dance floors in Darwin and across the country. ‘Arrow Holder’ is a punchy track that stays in line with group’s pop-rock sensibilities, with some great production elements and very catchy hooks. 

By Chelsea Heaney.

The single release was accompanied with a light-hearted music video, which involves chasing a buffalo around the NT bushland.  It’s fun, a little tongue in cheek and connects with the band’s Territory roots. 

‘Arrow Holder’ is a solid indie pop dance track, which further cements the much-loved locals as one of the most exciting acts around. The lyrics are relatively vague but it is the infectious rhythm and energetic riffs that really carry the song. 

This latest move follows a pretty successful year for At The Dakota, with the debut of their single ‘Rat King City’ and playing BASSINTHEGRASS Festival as the people’s local choice. They will be backing this up with some interstate gigs, including Nannup Music Festival in WA and a single launch party at Four5Nine in Perth. 

They’re definitely an NT band to keep an eye on and if ‘Arrow Holder’ is anything to go by, we can all look forward to the release of their EP Melt in April this year.
