Forget what you may know about Dinosaur Feathers. They’ve evolved from solo bedroom pop project to dance party karaoke machine, and — most recently — hard hitting rock band. Now armed with a real live drummer, more guitar riffs, and an ever-evolving arsenal of bizarre sounds, they continue to build on their infectiously sunny melodies towards jazzy punk/pop bliss. In this episode, Travis sits down with the band to talk about hitting pedestrians with your tour van, questioning the meaning of being a musician, and sharing a moment of true harmony.
Featured song: “Untrue”
Whistle Tips is available now from Ernest Jenning.
