Slingshot Dakota are releasing their new album, Heavy Banding, toward the end of the month. They shared lead single “Louder” for it a few weeks ago, and today the Pennsylvania duo are putting out another new song, “Casino Night.”
It’s a heavy-sounding track, each instrument buried underneath a bed of ever-present keys, but Carly Comando’s voice comes through clear when it counts: “What happened to your heart that made you want to take mine?/ What happened to your life that made you want to leave mine?” she sings, wallowing deep in the irreparable damage a friendship can leave behind.
“The song is about that heartbreaking situation where you you love someone so much and respect them for the experience and the growth that they’ve given you but, you’ve kind of hit like an end point. At least for now.,” Comando said in an interview with DuJour.
