dinosaur feathers
 
Recently we’ve witnessed a number of bold moves by Brooklyn duo Dinosaur Feathers. To call your new single Zeitgeist is, for example, a bold move. An even bolder move, however, comes when that single sounds like it’s straight out of 1982. Zeitgeist is the lead single from the just-announced third Dinosaur Feathers LP, CONTROL, which will see a release on October 7 via Ernest Jenning Record Co.
 
The song, with its Like A Virgin groove and gated drum sound, is already massive. But it’s singer Greg Sullo who pushes the song over the edge. He commits to the song without flinching; emoting and riffing with such convincing soul that it’s as if this band has been churning out songs of this caliber since the day they started. However, this is not merely a regurgitation of a retro genre, but a careful reworking with Dinosaur Feathers’ already established brand of nervous, deliciously uneven pop. And boy, does it work. By the time Sullo and the horn section reach the song’s epic coda around the two-minutes-fifty mark, CONTROL will have shot up to the top of your list of most anticipated fall releases. Check out the lyric video for Zeitgiest, the tracklist for CONTROL, and the band’s newly-announced tour dates below.
