"In your late twenties you begin to wonder if refusing to let go of your dreams is just mindless determination or if it's an actual decision you keep making, each and every day."

Amsterdam-based band DAKOTA releases their debut album with it's programmatic title "Here's The 101 On How To Disappear".

Lisa Brammer, Lana Kooper, Jasmine van der Waals and Annemarie van den Born blend washed-out walls of sound and sunny california feelings, driving garage rock and melancholic, meandering dream pop, and combine all this with clever and sharp, sometimes bitter observations about everything interpersonal.

Is the dream you are chasing your friend or have you always been the stalker, refusing to let go? And is this chase at some point the only thing that is your evidence of that dream? Is it now just idiotic pride that keeps you on the same path, or are we really resolved to do this? You are left high and dry, again and again, but try to keep your head up.

Touring with their previous singles EPs, and the very beautiful 'Silver Tongue/Wanderlust' - 7inch, Dakota quickly made a name of being an amazing live band, leaving a lasting impression at The Great Escape, Reeperbahn Festival, or Eurosonic and got praised by the likes of BBC Radio 1 and tasteful early adaptors like The Line Of Best Fit.

Dakota set a mark with a beautiful and complex, sad and light album. "Here's The 101 On How To Disappear" is about staring at the abyss and daring to ask all the questions. With dignity and grace.
