Australian Indie-Rockers Last Dinosaurs Return With The Motorik New Single + Video “Afterlife”

September 1, 2023 BY Jason Currell

Today, the Australian indie-rock trio Last Dinosaurs enter a new era with the release of a motorik song “Afterlife.” The Dinos take a grungy wall-of-sound approach with fuzzy guitars and a raw production style. After releasing their acclaimed album From Mexico With Love last year, which featured Lachlan Caskey as the main songwriting vehicle, “Afterlife” sees the return of Sean Caskey as a primary songwriter. Listen to “Afterlife” on all digital retailers (here). 

Sean elaborates, “’Afterlife’ was inspired by an AI artwork by Luke Nugent from his ‘Shopping For Gifts’ series. It features two mildly warped Asian guys standing in an unrecognisable yet very familiar train station, both holding portable TV devices. The image struck me in such a strong way that left me staring at it for hours and days. At the time I was struggling to find a true inspirational element to act as the axis for all my songs until I realised that the key was to make the album that was being broadcast through these futuristic TV devices.”

To celebrate the release of ‘Afterlife’ Last Dinosaurs are playing a one-off Australian at The Factory in Sydney, Australia on September 23rd, with support from Caroline & Claude, JNR, and Bridge Dog. Find tickets here.

Since their 2022 LP, From Mexico With Love, Last Dinosaurs have basked in the critical acclaim from Rolling Stone AustraliaNMEFLOOD, FLAUNT, and Under the Radar, while touring around the world to bigger rooms and even more ravenous crowds. Now they’re back with fresh new music, headlining dates in Sydney and London, and a fast-selling U.S. co-headlining tour alongside Vacations, dubbed ‘TOURZILLA’ which kicks off this fall at All Things Go Festival in Maryland.

–Rolling Stone AU

Brothers Lachlan and Sean Caskey, along with Michael Sloane have played sold out headlining shows and festivals across UK, Europe, Southeast Asia, South Africa, and the Americas. The success of studio albums, In a Million Years, WellnessYumeno Garden, and From Mexico With Love, have taken them around the world and back, playing notable festivals like Lollapalooza, Corona Capital, All Things Go Festival, and more alongside artists like Florence + the Machine, Bad Suns, Foals, Matt & Kim, Foster the People, and more.
