I discovered Hey! Brontosaurus last year and have been enjoying their work immensely. Unlike the Clash-inspired funk of their “Backlash” single, “Wake Up” comes more from a more alt-country school. Lyrically, both songs song are brilliantly constructed, and downright inspiring. Thus, Hey Brontosaurus runs the risk of being a band that is important. Their songs can motivate you in fresh and unexpected ways. Which is dangerous, and good.
