Easing you into the New Year is Brooklyn, NYC’s very own Dakota Jones, who make their comeback with new single ‘Sugar Pie’.
‘Sugar Pie’ is the first new music from the acclaimed funk 4-piece since their much-loved debut album Black Light caused a stir in summer 2021. Back with the silky tones of lead singer Tristan Carter-Jones, fans will still recognise Dakota Jones’ signature powerful R‘n’B-infused funk sound but something has changed… The funk is dirtier, the vocals are sultrier. It’s got grit but there’s also a sweetness at play with ‘Sugar Pie’, with Tristan singing about ‘sweet songs since day one,’ and sharing the infectiousness of being in love. With one eyebrow raised and a crooked grin, it’s a fun return for the esteemed Brooklyn 4-piece.
‘It’s the effortless cool of a gang of two, walking in step through streets paved with sugar under a plush pink sky,” says the band. “Don’t know where you’re going and you don’t care. It’s rose-coloured glasses on the tip of your nose, and kisses like cotton candy.”
