On Friday, Nashville’s intensely talented Whoa Dakota (Jess Ott) released the first step to her sophomore effort – a debut full-length titled Patterns, a follow up to 2015’s I’m a Liar EP -, the album’s coveted title track. “Patterns” is a groovy, nostalgic tribute to the 90’s in its composition and feel, a buoyant lead in for your fall season. It’s not always you find an artist whose vocals expertly complement instrumentals, especially one who hasn’t yet released a full-length. But Whoa Dakota brings every element to the forefront in a very clever and divine way. So take a four minute and nineteen second break to put a little more bounce in your work ethic today, with this sweet narrative on breaking “Patterns”.

Keep up with Whoa Dakota here.
