Blood for album: Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs “Trouble”Posted: June 27, 2012
Modern pop music at its best. This time my blood donation goes to one-man-band project Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. A 28 years old Orlando Higginbottom from Oxford, discovered by Berlin-London label Greco-Roman, brings out his debut album “Trouble“, which charmed me with the perfect balance between positivity and melancholy in the electronic dance music. In a very similar way Erlend Oye did it in his projects King Of Conveniece or The Whitest Boy Alive. Artist himself about his album: “I hoped to make a record that felt free from the frequent short-lived trends in dance music, and that made sense to a dancer and a listener. I feel like I’ve been working on this debut album for ages and now I can’t wait to get it out there”. One thing to add. I love Orlando’s decission to use Dinosaur costumes (design by Nina Rebina) in his performances. It is avangard absurd eye cathers with no meaning, but it looks special – what is indeed important in todays overcrowded market of content.
