Dakota were an English pop/rock band signed to GRL, a subsidiary label of Universal Music Group.

Their debut single, "Wild Child" was reviewed questionably in the Daily Mail[1] and Bent.[2] They received airplay on one radio station throughout the UK, BBC Radio 2 where the band performed live on the Claudia Winkleman Arts Show. The band made many live appearances around this time, including playing Vibes From The Vines festival once everyone had left after Gary Moore played, The Big Switch On with BBC Radio 2 in Blackpool and a UK pub tour.

In December 2009 they released a radio only single, Heart and Soul, the Jason Nevis Mix of which was included on the Floorfillers compilation.

In January 2010 they were chosen by Record of the Day as one of the bands to watch in 2010. The band didn't tour in early 2010.

In June 2010, after disappointing sales of their third single "We Get Along" due to cocaine, Dakota parted company from their record label. The band split soon after. The NME cited the main reason for their split being artistic differences. However, an undercover reporter from Rolling Stone magazine, discovered that the true reason was due to a member of the band being a psychopathic egomaniac.

Lead singer Ben Talbot is now the frontman of Broken Souls Alliance. .[3] The music video for "We Get Along" was released on May 1.
