Bethlehem duo Slingshot Dakota are about to kick off a new tour with label-mates Ratboys, leading them to Austin for SXSW. But before they set out, the band has released a video for their song, “You,” which reminisces on the fun, kooky moments of their past tour with Kississippi — which they booked entirely themselves.
For a song that’s just so dang catchy and fun, this light-hearted video is the perfect, playful match. Giving fans a close look into the kinds of shenanigans that spouses Carly Comando and Tom Patterson get into while on the road, the video ranges from car malfunctions, to a day at the jungle gym, to Patterson’s fabulous news/weather reports, to just simply lounging around — all amidst clips of the two rocking out and Patterson’s bountiful curls magically blowing in the wind.
Best of all, the video showcases Comando and Patterson’s easy-going relationship (i.e. they eloped on last year’s tour with punk faves Title Fight). They’re just two best friends in love playing awesome tunes and being shameless hooligans. If that’s not the dream, I don’t know what is.
Though Slingshot Dakota won’t be swinging by Philly on this southwest tour, send them off in spirit and pretend you’re there by watching this chuckle-inducing video over and over again.
