Having spent most of the summer roaming across the globe destroying everything in his path, the creature that goes by the name of Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs has returned to the US after great showings at this year’s SXSW. The UK-based producer
(nee Orlando Higginbottom) has announced the US release of the single “Trouble,” which will be coming out on October 18th. His tunes will definitely appeal to fans of Hot Chip, as much as it appeals to Hot Chip themselves. Hot Chip-er Joe Goddard released the first EP and tracks from the young Mr. Higginbottom last year on his Greco-Roman label.

Sure to be another highlight in TEED’s rapidly expanding catalogue, “Trouble” finds him completely immersed in the role of vocalist, singing throughout, providing the story with a genuine heartfelt quality. Of course this is paired with his trademark sub-bass, electro bounciness and washed-out synths that combine to create a stunning piece of modern dancefloor pop. You can watch the video for “Trouble” here which takes place at the weirdest party you’ve never been to.

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs swings between overt musicality and scarily on-point dance floor intuition, tearing up gigs around the globe with his live show of bizarre instruments, glitter cannons and of course… dancing dinosaurs. He’s also been quite busy as of late, having recently traveled to the Congo with Damon Albarn to be one of the producers for his DRC Music project, which sees a release via Warp on October 4th.

After releasing his previous three EP’s through Greco-Roman, TEED has now signed to Polydor Records and is busy putting the finishing touches to his eagerly anticipated debut album. Joining label-mates such as Jamie Woon, La Roux, Klaxons and many more,
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs is in good company!
