It was early 2017, and the band had just spent more than 12 months on the road playing shows in support of Wellness, all the while filing away inspirations and ideas that would fill their next chapter as a band.
It was a time for them to search for new inspiration, and so they packed what was essentially a mini studio and travelled to the isolated town of Arita, Japan. The band’s principal songwriters, Sean and Lachlan Caskey, are of Japanese heritage, so in some ways this was a pilgrimage to find their roots, and yet once there, it dawned on them quickly that the place itself was completely foreign.
“We went there to seek isolation,” explains Sean. “Somewhere very regional, very quiet. We wanted to feel like real outsiders in a place for some reason. Often, we don’t feel like we really belong in Brisbane or Australia musically (even though we love being a Brisbane band), but
wanted to record somewhere where that isolation could be felt everywhere, all the time, so we could properly capture it.”
It was here they penned a string of songs that would go on to form their third album, and included in that bunch was their huge new single, ‘Eleven’. It’s subtly emotional, slightly jagged, and slathered in a beautifully distorted sheen. ‘Eleven,’ stands in many ways as the perfect counterpart to the wallop that was the band’s comeback single ‘Dominos,’ which has been dominating the airwaves since the start of the year. Both songs combine to give a nod to Dino’s earlier, guitar driven sound, while reinforcing the impeccable pop song structure they’ve developed through their last six years in the spotlight.
“This album has been a lot about revisiting our roots in every way,” says Sean. After hearing ‘Eleven,’ you’d be hard pressed to argue with him.
December 2018 found the release of their third single from Yumeno Garden, ‘Bass God’. Catch this and more of your favorite Dinos songs on their 2019 fall tour across the US.
