Hit of The Week: Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs “Blood in the Snow”

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (aka Orlando Higginbottom) has announced When the Lights Go, his first album since his 2012 debut, which will be out July 22 on his own Nice Age imprint. He’s making up for lost time, though, as it’s a 17-track double LP.

The first single from the album is “Blood in the Snow,” a dark and moody track that is more low-key groovy (and slides a little in trip hop territory) than “danceable,” but it’s very good. “This song is about melting glaciers and wanting a daughter, where to put love in this tailspin,” says Orlando.
