Showcasing a deft mix of jangle-pop and synth-laden pop, "Human" is a captivating new track from dream-pop trio Raised By Dinosaurs . Think Wild Nothing's guitar work combined with the lush nocturnal synth edge of Chromatics. A South American dream-pop trio based in San Francisco, Raised By Dinosaurs exist to ponder the “everyday fear of being irrelevant.” Their first EP 'Night Terrors' (released 11/23/17) is a tragically upbeat exploration of a wiser yet more jaded persona that evolves as youth and vitality begin to fade. Collaborating remotely from Brazil, guitarist Henrique St.Clair incorporates an experimental dreamy tone to the melodies, distancing the group away from the upbeat nature of pop and towards a gloomier, more self-reflective vibe. Singer/songwriter Marcello Manso haunts lead vocalist Sol Diaz through each track like the shadow of a memory she struggles to let go of, her own voice gradually degenerating into the electronic composition of the songs, becoming like technology and trends, unavoidably obsolete.
Raised By Dinosaurs is the creative brain child of longtime friends Marcello and Henrique. As Henrique entered into a new phase of his life, becoming a father, the two took it upon themselves to record music that addressed the fear we all must deal with in time, the anxiety of that life is perhaps meaningless. “Human “ was written to express empathy to the new generation that will eventually also become obsolete. “Human” is soothing and sweet, a lullaby from one generation to the next.
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
