Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs’ Second LP Arrives Ten Years Later [Listen]

totally enormous extinct dinosaurs album

With a year of single releases including “Blood In the Snow” and “The Sleeper“, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs’ new studio album When the Lights Go has arrived. With 17 tracks highlighting the ups and down of Orlando Higginbottom’s life over the last decade, this new sound sees more melodies and riveting synthlines, more vocals, and indie-pop dancefloor crossover. These songs span across different periods of Orlando’s life over the past ten years as he encompasses themes relating to “past romantic relationships, as well as broader topics such as mental health, the patriarchal system, and climate change.”

In a 10-year span since his previous releases, Orlando says this album is “about love and the end of the world.” When the Lights Go is his second LP, following the release of his debut album Trouble a decade ago. Orlando has toured the globe, settled in LA for seven years, worked behind-the-scenes producing for a range of top-tier acts, and earned himself a Grammy nomination in 2022 for his collaboration with Bonobo – ‘Heartbreak’.

The album arrives ahead of Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs’ highly-anticipated new live show coming to stages across Europe and North America this Fall. After many years of touring around the world as a DJ, the tour marks Orlando’s first live shows since 2013. River Beats saw Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaur during his tour stop at Republic NOLA earlier this summer.
