An Australian indie rock band with a global reach, Last Dinosaurs is a three-piece born out of the Brisbane music scene in 2009. Formed by lead singer and guitarist Sean Caskey, the band often uses vintage synthesizers and analogue production techniques to create signature sounds. With a sound that references the 80's and 90's post-punk period, Last Dinosaurs have taken their music all around the world, and their catchy hooks, driving guitars, and soaring synths have kept fans coming back for more.
Last Dinosaurs initially made their presence felt with their eponymous debut EP, released in 2010. The five track EP featured the songs “Weekend”, “Zoom”, and “My Father’s Son”, and was the band’s first big break. Later that year, the band’s full-length album “In a Million Years” was released in Australia and the UK. The album featured the singles “Andy”, “Back to You”, and “Honolulu”, as well as classics such as “Time & Place”, “Dominos”, and “Trust”.
In 2012, Last Dinosaurs released their second studio album “Yumenu Garden”. The album’s lead single “Kurayami Girl” experienced strong airplay, while the follow-up singles “Honolulu (Remix)” and “Alone Time” received praise. The release of “Yumenu Garden” saw Last Dinosaurs grow in popularity, and they soon followed up with the album “Wellness” in 2013. Featuring songs like “Evie”, “14th Floor”, and “Honolulu 2.0”, the album earned the band worldwide acclaim and further established them as one of Australia’s top indie rock acts.
The band’s core lineup since the formation of Last Dinosaurs has been Sean Caskey on vocals and guitar, lead guitarist Lachlan Caskey, bassist Dan Koyama, and drummer Michael Sloane. Over the years, various other musicians have been part of the band, including Andrew Hasson on guitar and keyboards, and Josh Nicholson on drums.
Fans of Last Dinosaurs might enjoy the sounds of fellow Australian bands Gang Of Youths, The Presets, Ball Park Music, and The Jezabels. Other bands and artists in the same vein include Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes, Death Cab For Cutie, The Kooks, and Two Door Cinema Club.
Since forming in 2009, Last Dinosaurs have released a number of hit songs, among them “Weekend”, “Kurayami Girl”, “My Father’s Son”, “Honolulu”, “Andy”, “Evie”, and “Back to You”. Each of these songs has become a fan favourite, and are well known for their unique sound and catchy hooks.
Last Dinosaurs have been a major part of the Australian music scene for over a decade, and their albums and singles have earned the band both critical acclaim and a loyal fan following. Now over 10 years since their inception, Last Dinosaurs continues to expand their audience and create irresistible tunes.
