ALBUM REVIEW: Last Dinosaurs - Yumeno Garden

Brisbane natives Last Dinosaurs have returned with their third studio album, Yumeno Garden.


Following up from 2015’s Wellness album Last Dinosaurs have picked up from where left off, continuing with their unique 90’s inspired nu disco and alternative rock sound. The album is full of big jittery guitars, reverb out vocals and full on indie dance tracks. The opener Eleven sets the tone for the album with lo-fi phased out guitar rhythms and catchy vocals.


A stand out track is Italo Disco a slow down track which very reminiscent of some of the Italo Disco tracks from the 80’s. The lead synth line flows throughout the song, and a real smooth drum beat keeps the track going.

 

Shallow Boy is fun track with a big summer vibe, verse leads up to a chorus with a big wash of reverb. The song sticks in your head, I can’t stop singing this song it’s so catchy!


Yumeno Garden is a great Summer listen, going through dance songs to slow jams, it’s a really enjoyable album!


If you’re a fan of Phoenix and San Cisco you will definitely enjoy this album!
