Waking Up With A Brontosaurus

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.

Riding The “Backlash” with Hey! Brontosaurus

This little ditty is seriously makin’ me shake my stuff. Over an upbeat, poppy sound similar to Blur, the vocals and lyrics hit you like a stun gun. Echos of “Radio Clash” and other 80’s wonderfulness. It’s class war as dance party! And Hey! Brontosaurus is winning.
