Last Dinosaurs – Splendour to Melb Uni

The set in the amphitheatre, due the weather, was messier than my undies after watching the First Jurassic Park as a 4 year old.

[/fusion_text][fusion_text]What do you call a dinosaur that’s a noisy sleeper? A bronto-snorus.[/fusion_text][fusion_text]2015 is the year of the Dinosaur. Following the revival of the long dormant Jurassic Park series, Jurassic world, we’ve also been gifted with new music from one of Australia’s indie pop staples, The Last Dinosaurs. It has been 3 years since the quartet gave us the top 10 album In A Million Years that featured classics such as Zoom, Honolulu and I can’t help you.

Evie, their latest release gives the fans what we know and love. Sticking to their airy, pop-indie guitar riffs and sweet hooks, they change their sound up just enough with a larger dosage of synthesisers to breathe fresh air into the bands sound. The track certainly has me excited for their currently unnamed album, which is predicted to be out later this year.[/fusion_text][separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”” bottom_margin=”30″ sep_color=”” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”center” class=”” id=””][fusion_text]

Last Dinosaurs at Splendour[/fusion_text][fusion_text]

The band has just finished a short, sold out, Australian tour which culminated with a set at splendour. The set in the amphitheatre, due the weather, was messier than my undies after watching the First Jurassic Park as a 4 year old. I’m not sure if my white t-shirt will ever recover.[/fusion_text][testimonials design=”classic” backgroundcolor=”” textcolor=”” random=”” class=”” id=””]

  • The Last Dinosaurs act at Splendour In The Grass 2015 was absolutely surreal! Playing their gig at dusk, the middle of the amphitheatre brought a considerable crowd. Everybody came along in their jackets, gumboots and were not afraid to roll and mosh in the mud to the amazing sound and atmosphere! During their set list, a certain group of people began to blow up Inflatable dinosaurs and throw them around the ‘mosh pit’. It was at this stage when the crowd started bouncing off each other and began to go crazy! This particular act at splendour in the grass was a massive highlight for my friends and I, and it was a great way to kick off an amazing afternoon! Would most definitely recommend seeing these guys when the opportunity arises!

So if you’re at Melbourne Uni make sure you get down have a listen, there will also be a BBQ and the opportunity to have a few Germaine Greers (beers). Or if you go to the TAFE down the road, it is time to brush the dust off that Melbourne Uni hoodie you use to blend in when such events are on. So get down, you never know, we may be gifted with another taste from the band’s new album.
