SINGLE REVIEW: Last Dinosaurs – Eleven
Earlier this year Last Dinosaurs returned with their first single in three years. ‘Dominos’ heard them revisiting their signature indie-rock sound with a big festival ready hook that will quickly get stuck in your head. But the Brisbane indie favourites have just announced an intimate run of headline shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane which will see them playing tracks from their forthcoming third studio album for the first time. To coincide with this announcement they’ve also released their new single ‘Eleven’ which excitingly continues the indie-rock vibes. The track is less radio polished and reverts to their indie-rock roots with crunching guitars and and gritty harmonies. The track is unsurprisingly inspired by The Strokes with it’s similar production stylings and is even fully equipped with a guitar solo. It was written after the band had witnessed The Strokes live at Splendour In The Grass a couple of years ago. They felt inspired to create a similar moment which they thankfully succeeded at doing. It’s not a massive breakthrough moment like their previous singles but it’s honest, bold and slightly different while still managing to hold onto the raw essence that is Last Dinosaurs.
