‘Trouble’ is one of the most eagerly awaited debut electronic albums for years, with previous singles ‘Garden’, ‘Tapes & Money’, ‘Trouble’, and ‘Household Goods’ joined by a wealth of new music. This is a celebration of electronic music’s diversity and range. As Orlando, aka TEED himself comments: “I hoped to make a record that felt free from the frequent short-lived trends in dance music, and that made sense to a dancer and a listener. I feel like I’ve been working on this debut album for ages and now I can’t wait to get it out there”.
Surely and steadily, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs has seen his star rapidly ascend. From YouTube views of his “Garden” video exceeding 2.5 million, to heading out to the Congo with Damon Albarn to record an album for Warp; remixing Lady Gaga and even playing an exclusive set from the top of the Millbank Tower across the Thames, one of the chief pleasures of witnessing Orlando’s remarkable rise to the top has been just how distinctive and exciting it all is.
There will also be a cracking double single of “American Dream Part II”/ “Stronger” released the same week, and with both headline and festival dates locked in across the UK, Europe and around the world in the coming months, there can be little doubt that the soundtrack of the summer will definitely be Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.
