“Nature, nurture, two of the greatest words in existence, now neatly compacted together for an album that could be one of the greatest albums ever in existence” – Zane Lowe
Dinosaur Pile-Up release second album ‘Nature Nurture’ today through SO Recordings and to celebrate they’ve posted a video featuring candid footage from their time in the studio, along with the lyrics to latest single ‘Derail’. The rockers will be heading out on tour in July.
‘Nature Nurture’ is a record that builds on the crisp, euphoric power-pop of the band’s debut album ‘Growing Pains’, but paints it in broader colours and a wider emotional range, from the brazen Main Stage pop bluster of lead single ‘Arizona Waiting’, through the Kinks-infused psyche of ‘Summer Girl’, to the robotic crunch of ‘White T-Shirt And Jeans’. While retaining what made the rock world fall for them in the first place, it revels in the rich history of British pop from the sixties and seventies.
