The past couple of years have been only the beginning for Dakota Jones, the mesmerizing four-piece funk/soul band from New York. They made their big debut in 2021 with the release of Black Light, an 11-track project that garnered much praise from outlets like The Times and DIVA. After the release, Dakota Jones continued to grow as a band, putting on riveting live shows and earning a reputation as one of the most exciting funk/soul bands to emerge onto the scene in years. Additionally, Dakota Jones have been using this time to work on new music. Ready to kick off what will surely be an incredible year for them, Dakota Jones are presenting us with their new single, “Sugar Pie.”
Mixing the innocent with the dirty, Dakota Jones make a compelling return with “Sugar Pie.” Over mellow funk riffs and calm beats, vocalist Tristan Carter-Jones channels the pleasure and spontaneity that comes with love. Soulfully, Tristan sings, “You’re making my heart beat out of time” and “Let’s go back to my place” before concluding, “You’re my sugar pie / And I love the taste.” You can check it out in the fun video below.
About “Sugar Pie,” the band explains,
“It’s the effortless cool of a gang of two, walking in step through streets paved with sugar under a plush pink sky. Don’t know where you’re going and you don’t care. It’s rose-colored glasses on the tip of your nose and kisses like cotton candy.”
You can listen to “Sugar Pie” on platforms like Spotify and Apple Music.
