For Immediate Release: December 13, 2016
Dakota Blue is an emerging singer, guitarist, and visual artist from Los Angeles with a new EP on its way -- out early 2017. Two songs [and videos] have been released from the LAVALIKE EP so far. "Distant Disco" was released most recently -- an instrumental, experimental psych-pop track accompanied by a trippy, wildly colorful video of Dakota, himself, dancing through a suburban neighborhood in Fresno, California.
Today, IMPOSE Magazine has the premiere of Dakota's latest song and video for "Blueprints." The clip, which features footage taken from the outskirts of the Lost Lake Resort in California, sees Dakota dressed as a cowboy in the desert.
The songs on his new LAVALIKE EP have subtle undertones of humor or perhaps sarcasm, but the subject matter is serious, more often than not, in the vein of Ariel Pink, Devendra Banhart or early Beck (think One Foot In The Grave).
