LA artist Dakota Blue is gearing up to release his new album Rodeo Knife. Blue grew up writing and recording songs in LA pool houses. He now writes songs in his head on long walks and records in his bedroom in Century City, Los Angeles. We are thrilled to premiere a new song called “Rear Mirror” below. The track has a distinct and captivating mood guided by Blue’s vocals, which command the listener’s attention.

On the album:

Rodeo Knife is a collection of songs influenced by a specific zone of LA. A cowboy  brandishing a knife and a lasso on Rodeo Drive. A stroll through space themed streets devoid of people. In this comfortable and isolated space, the songs just wrote themselves. Emotions range from Aw Man’s anxious energy addressing borderline agoraphobia to Cashmere’s soft nostalgic ballad about previous homes.

Stream the track below and be sure to keep up with Dakota online for more!
