Australian quartet Last Dinosaurs deliver a sound that harks back to the rhythmic 2000s indie of bands like Phoenix, the Kooks, and Two Door Cinema Club, serving sharp and polished dance-rock.
The band formed in 2007 while frontman Sean Caskey and drummer Dan Koyama were still in high school. They later recruited Caskey's brother Lachlan on guitar and Michael Sloane on bass. Their debut EP, Back from the Dead, was released in 2010. Their breakthrough full-length arrived in 2012. In a Million Years (Dew Process Records) was produced by Jean-Paul Fung (Silverchair, Jet) and debuted in the Top Ten on the Australian albums chart. The band toured in support of the album, touching down in Europe, Africa, Australia, and Asia, where they placed particular focus in large part because of the Caskeys' and Koyama's Japanese heritage. Their Sophomore album 'Wellness' produced by Scott Horscroft (Silverchair, the Presets, Empire of the Sun), added ethereal tones to their existing energetic style and debuted in the Top 20 of the ARIA charts.
