Last Dinosaurs unveil the video for ‘Evie’, the latest single from their hotly anticipated second studio album; due in stores later this year.
Last month the band announced their return with a brand new single, a run of national tour dates and performance at Splendour In The Grass 2015. The ‘Evie’ national tour, which takes in five states across the country, sold out in Sydney and Melbourne in less then 72 hours, with Brisbane and Adelaide following suit within a week. Only a few tickets remain for Perth. With an excess of 230,000 plays across YouTube and SoundCloud since the song’s release plus high rotation on Triple J, ‘Evie’ and the band’s return have been welcomed with open arms by a rapturous fan base and media alike.
Bass player Michael Sloane directed the video, which was filmed in the band’s hometown of Brisbane. Sloane, who also directed their previous clips for ‘Time & Place’, ‘Zoom’ and ‘Andy’, says of the video “The band knew we wanted to incorporate a story with band performance, so eventually I came to a concept involving a character’s dreams and reality that reflected some of the ideas in the song lyrics. I wanted to capture some of the feeling you get after waking up from a vivid dream, and how the memory of that dream can stay with you and seem almost like a memory. Cinematographer Danny Camara and I shot with an old broken lens for the dream scenes, literally holding the lens in front of the sensor to achieve the tilt-shift effect. “
The ‘Evie’ 2015 Australian Tour begins June 20th; tickets for Saturday July 4th in Perth are still available. Last Dinosaurs are scheduled to take the stage at Splendour In The Grass on Sunday July 26. Details of forthcoming album to be announced soon.
