Young Dinosaur


Young Dinosaur - Fake Diamond Records

Young Dinosaur can be described – very shortly – with one adjective; ENTHUSIASM. The songs move in a very free structure, and every single song is filled with enthusiasm and new ideas.

Throughout their debut album, it’s clear that Young Dinosaur has a unique and intimate understanding of each other. The key word is most certainly friendship – which is a big part of the albums story-telling.

The lyrics and the presence – performed by lead singer – Eske – direct the songs to an uncertain place in time. The stories told moves in circles; from the very close corner towards a very substantial open territory. To make such a circular motion in such an effortless way, is something, most singer-songwriters can never pitch.

Excellent Danish bands such as Oh No Ono, Figuerines and Treefight for Sunlight are surely a source of inspiration. But new territorial genres are also to be found. The sound of the Beach Boys and Dirty Projectors has also functioned as a source of inspiration.







#FakeDiamondInterview x Young Dinosaur

17.08.2015FDR: So boys, it’s been a busy summer! Can you elaborate on the Roskilde Festival experience:

YD: Besides playing a great gig, it was very nice getting back together in the rehearsal room and make new tunes together. Afterwards it was nice hanging on the festival together.

FDR: And also - you performed at Pumpehusets Byhave as well as a smaller gig at the Danish menswear store - Soulland. How was that?:

YD: Both went over well. It was cool to get some clothes from Soulland. As our soundtechnician remarked: “It’s the first time i’ve ever seen you guys in new clothes.”

FDR: And besides touring, what else have you guys been up to?

YD: Mostly hanging out, enjoying the summer and making new music. Besides that, we have been working on a studio/new rehearsal space, that will be finished in the next couple of months.

FDR: So what do you have in store for the rest of 2015? Any new music coming out?

YD: Right now the only thing on our schedule is to make new sounds and songs, finish our studio and record some more. Exactly when the songs will be available, we don’t know yet.

FDR: What’s the greatest thing about being a young musician?

YD: We don’t what the greatest thing is, but it sure is a great combo.

FDR: Besides your own music, what other Fake Diamond artist(s) do you listen to?

YD: Vinnie Who

FDR: Can you tell us one fact, that no one probably knows about you guys?

YD: Eske and Joachim first played together in a hard rock band called the Dragon boyz. The problem was the band was so bad, that we got banned from the gymnasium’s Friday bar.


FDR: Thank you, dudes. <3

YD: Thank you too! And thanks to everyone reading this!
