Manchester trio Dakota Avenue premiere their latest cut ‘The Island’ ahead of its official release tomorrow, May 31st.

Comprised of J Greenhalgh-Lee, Andy Wynn and Frank Harris, the emerging dirty-indie trio are intertwining atmospherics and groove into new cut ‘The Island’.

Earlier this year saw Dakota Avenue return with steamy-new single ‘Getintheshower’, fresh off the towel rack. Fluent in sarcasm and common-tongue, the band pen stories of everyday struggles and pet-peeves.

The new-fiery tune ‘The Island’ follows a dream to see the world through the eyes of skyline corporate-giants to understand their careless, environmentally damaging decisions.

Frontman J Greenhalgh-Lee said: “My parents spoke some absolute gold and I literally used to jot everything they said down and I grew up in and around Bolton so we saw a lot.

“I think places like that need more money which is probably where a lot of my passion comes from. It’s just an unjust world”.

Often championed for their explosive and dynamic stage show, the lads sold over 150 tickets for their headline show at Manchester’s Night People in February following a sold-out Eagle Inn show. They jump straight back in with a show at Star & Garter on June 6th and having released only one of their four scheduled tunes, Dakota Avenue is excited for this year to come.
