Watch: Last Dinosaurs Talk ‘In A Million Years’ Track By Track

Written by Brayden Darke on April 19, 2012

Brisbane four-piece Last Dinosaurs’ debut album In A Million Years was released last month, and has already had some rave reviews, including Bloc Party’s Russell Lissack tweeting “it’s the best guitar work I’ve heard in a long time”. Today we’ve been given some insight into the recording, as lead singer Sean Caskey explains the details each track, from their conception up to how it was recorded.

The first single, Time & Place, was born out of his obsession over the story behind Serbian-American inventor Nicolas Tesla, who made revolutionary advances in the field of electromagnetism – pioneering concepts behind modern technology we take for granted today, but who then had fell into obscurity and was never credited for his work.

The catchy riff from the second single Zoom, he reveals, was written in about five minutes one night, before he was about to go to bed.

The guys are currently touring the album throughout this month, and will also play on the Splendour in the Grass 2012 lineup for this July.
