Webster Hall Welcomes Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaur Tomorrow
December 12th, 2012
There’s no doubting Orlando Higginbottom’s musical background. He’s been a music teacher, his father is the choir conductor at University of Oxford, and he grew up listening to classical music. “I thought Mozart was really cool. I had a book, an A to Z of composers, that I read every night. They were like rock and roll stars to me.” But then as a teen, his tastes began to change, leaning more toward party music. Higginbottom has since gone on to do remixes for the likes of Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, but he’s more recently become known for his own solo project, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. His sound rests in the Venn diagram overlap of pop, electronica, house and rave music, and his debut album, Trouble, led by first single “Garden,” was met with acclaim and commercial success. But, really, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaur (above, doing “Household Goods” at this year’s Bestival on the Isle of Wight) makes music to move you, which you can do live and in person, tomorrow night at Webster Hall.
