Dinosaur Pile-Up – New Album

Matt Bigland is the hugely talented and genuinely nice guy musician behind Leeds band Dinosaur Pile-Up. As with previous album “Growing Pains” the latest album “Nature Nurture” is entirely recorded by Matt himself. This approach means that every Dinosaur Pile-Up’s release since the early demo’s are always of  a singular vision, coherent and personal. Matt is managing to retain that most sought after things in music, control.

The latest video “Derail” is a forerunner to the release of “Nature Nurture”. It’s promising to hear all the things we love about DP are still there. It has vocal over the chugging guitars, bass and drums that operate as a single beast. Matt’s lyrics are always cuttingly honest and sung with a lilt that can be heartbreaking at times. This song is more subtle than previous singles, and people may find that it takes a couple of listens before they get the point. I think that is to the song’s credit.

The Remy Cayuela directed video  is beautifully shot in the Californian desert. A homage to Hitchcock, Tarantino and American slasher films it charts the escape of a kidnapped girl from a motel. The girl in question, Diana Vickers, might be familiar if you watched the X Factor a few years back. She’s donned the leathers and black wig this time however, and gives a genuinely decent performance. DP videos have a history of humour and this definitely isn’t taking itself too seriously while still managing to compliment the melancholic vibe of the song. We’re looking forward to hearing the new album, and this has got us much more excited about it.

Nature Nurture is due for release on 17th June 2013. Pre Order On Amazon
