DINOWALRUS is a synth-rock band from Brooklyn, NY comprised of Pete Feigenbaum, sound designer/synth and bass wizard Liam Andrew, and veteran drummer Max Tucker.
Pete started the band in 2008. They started 2009 strong with a 7″ release that was distributed by Impose and RVNG, plus another 7″ release on the Australian label EXO.
In January 2010, DINOWALRUS put out their shape shifting, eclectic and erudite debut, %, on Kanine Records (Surfer Blood, Chairlift, Grizzly Bear). The band toured the east coast and California with the likes of Titus Andronicus, Fang Island, Aa, Signals (ex-mae shi), and Tempo no Tempo.
Later in 2010, Pete revamped the lineup and songwriting approach, and began working with Liam Andrew (synthesizers, bass). The two have been friends since college, where they both took a course entitled “the experimental traditional in pop music”, receiving course credit for listening to favorites such as PiL, Brian Eno, Throbbing Gristle and Kraftwerk.
After lineup changes, DINOWALRUS then turned towards a more pop-oriented songwriting approach that drew heavily on the 1980s beats of Madchester plus other groovin’ minimal synth, new wave, dark wave, and post punk angles, while retaining their psychedelic and krautock backbone. They released their sophomore album Best Behavior on Old Flame Records+Heist or Hit (Dead Confederate, Cloud Nothings, Millionyoung) in 2012.
