has gone through many reincarnations in its short life. Originating as a solo bedroom project in 2009 by Greg Sullo (who handled vocals, guitars, and drum machine duties at the time), the Brooklyn-based project has now evolved into a full-fledged indie-rock quartet.
That debut album, 2009’s Fantasy Memorial, with all of its diverse, yet hooky influences, certainly paved the way for Dinosaur Feathers’ forthcoming offering. Whistle Tips, an 11-song output, features a full band with Sullo (vocals, guitars), Nick Brooks (drums), Ryan Michael Kiley (bass) and Derek Zimmerman (keyboard) and drops April 10 via Ernest Jenning.
Check out “Untrue,” a single from their new album. Also, check out Dinosaur Feathers on tour with a load of other bands this spring including Grandchildren, Built to Spill, Lucero, Battles, Loch Lomond, Oberhoffer, Of Montreal, Blitzen Trapper, Control and Shy Mirrors.
