After referring to Last Dinosaurs’ debut LP In a Million Years as “the first Australian album of 2012 to truly capture my attention,” they’ve hit the mark again with their new single “Andy.” Currently completing a sold-out tour around Australia, they’ve also been added to this year’s Splendour in the Grass Lineup alongside the likes of Bloc Party, Jack White, and Lana Del Rey.
Having heard an advance copy of the album, “Andy” was always going to be their next single. It’s got all the aspects which make Last Dinosaurs’ music so enjoyable – the tropical rhythms, the commanding guitar riffs, and the simple but catchy lyrics. Having seen them play live three times in recent months, I can confirm it’s a great show.
This is a young band with talent well beyond their tender years. They’re going from strength to strength, and with an impending Europe Tour 2012 is proving to be a breakout year.
