The Indie Song of the day comes from indie pop-rock act Dakota. Last year they released their debut EP, So Far So Great The single is out and available on Spotify now, but for now, we're featuring a song from their last EP called "Going Nowhere."
Vocalist and lyricist Robin Panter explains the band's creative process and how he starts writing the lyrics for the band's songs:
I write the chord sequence and the melody, then the lyrics fall into place, just like a poem, rather than elaborating on a specific topic, so that they can be open to interpretation: my songs don’t tell a story, but set a mood, a vibe.” “Our songs portray a positive message and our music is jolly,” Jonathan adds, “but there is room for emotional ambiguity, with transitions and comparisons between riffs, as you can hear in ‘Natalie’, our most emotive and complex track.”
