Amsterdam indie rock band DAKOTA gets praises and high fives by Antwerpen/Hamburg-based dream pop duo THE DAY, with a playful and cheery cover version of Dakota’s iconic hit Icon. I adore the quirky vocals which create multiple unique atmospheres. Besides, the melodies are well-structured and know to impress until the last second. Furthermore, I am also a big fan of the quirky rhythms!
Speaking about the track, The Day’s singer and bass player Laura Loeters says: After I saw Dakota play in Arnhem in 2016, I couldn’t stop talking about them and soon Gregor was a fan too. Especially the song Icon was the one we fell in love with after hearing it for the first time. So we knew right away that this was the song we wanted to cover.”
