Dinosaur Bones Claim Their Birthright

The Toronto-based indie pop quintet, Dinosaur Bones, has amassed an impressive amount of accolades to date, no doubt adding weight to their shoulders, but it certainly isn't enough to keep them from forging forward. With their sound originally hatched in the college dorm room of guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter Ben Fox, Dinosaur Bones (comprised of Fox, bassist Branko Scekic, keyboardist Dave Wickland, drummer Lucas Fredette, and guitarist Josh Byrne) have wasted little time of their relatively young career pushing forward, turning plenty of heads along the way.

Hazy,downtrodden, and a bit sleepy, Dinosaur Bones create tunes that are like waking up from a dream; they're sort of there but sort of not and are they're all distorted like your vision. When you finally comprehend them you realize they're pretty, rich, and very good.

Dinosaur Bones' latest EP Birthright was recorded and mixed by Jon Drew (Fucked Up, Tokyo Police Club, Arkells). Thankfully, fans will not have to wait too long to get more of the band's brand of haunting, indie-pop. My Divider, their debut LP (also recorded and mixed by Jon Drew) drops in early 2011.
