It has been a long wait for fans, but today the Kings of Australian indie-pop Last Dinosaurs have dropped their brand new single PLUS the news of an Australian tour.
The long awaited track is a serious summer anthem and with just six words, Sean Caskey cements the single as an absolute classic Last Dinosaurs song.
As, “If I lose my head I’m sorry!” interrupts the swirling guitars and boom-boom-bap drumming that open this brand-new single, you can almost hear rapturous crowds already singing it back to him from packed rock clubs and swarming festival mosh pits in the not-too-distant future.
The track which was premiered on triple j’s Good Nights this week, following up from their single ‘Domino’ which dropped earlier this year.
Speaking about the song, Sean Caskey says he gained inspiration for it from one of the all-time rock greats. “We were at Splendour In The Grass a few years ago, watching The Strokes play and I was immediately inspired. I went home and wrote this song on my brand-new Rickenbacker guitar, even writing my first proper guitar solo for the track, and it ended up being one of the first of a new batch of songs that informed our upcoming album.”
