Brisbane powerhouse band Last Dinosaurs have become somewhat of a household name in the indie scene recently.

Their last full length album Yumeno Garden has taken them all over the world, and love for them across the world doesn’t seem to end.

Now, the group gives us a new taste of what’s to come, in the form of a new single and video, dubbed ‘FMU’.

“FMU is about a hypothetical conversation between Hong Kong and China about their relationship. It was initially about a break-up but the recent news about the Hong Kong riots inspired me to write for the Hong Kong people,” lead guitarist Sean Caskey explains.

Caskey continues, “Their situation is seemingly helpless, and I feel for them. I admire their fighting spirit and this song is supposed to be in support of them. The cover art for Public Image LTD’s first album ‘First Issue’ was what I stared at the whole time as I was recording the song too which I thought was symbolic of the conflict.

“An anarchic persona reimagined into a clean-cut modern icon. Hong Kong is protesting peacefully for the world to see but underneath is a desperate determination to preserve their sense of self,” he concludes.
