Although this is their first record under this name, ‘Dinosaur’ have been playing together since 2010, and you can hear this in their symphonic and mesmerising sound. The diversity of influences in the masterful composition from lead Laura Jurd, ranging from West African, Spanish and British folk, to church music and classical jazz, allows each member of the electric ensemble to showcase their individual abilities while keeping ‘Together, As One’ true to its name.
Dinosaur spoke to us about their 2017 Hyundai Mercury Prize shortlisted debut album 'Together, As One':
