Exclusive Single Premiere: Dinosaur Beard “Dialect Drum” (2019)

Dinosaur Beard, the moniker of Melbourne-based experimental folk musician Adam Finnegan, has gifted us a charming slow burner for his first single of 2019. Titled “Dialect Drum”, the hazy and melodic track highlights Finnegan’s captivating off-kilter style as it ebbs and flows with various notches of intensity.

“It’s a tale of breaking through those egoic walls that can hold people back at the start of a relationship, and having the courage to be open and vulnerable to each other for the first time”, explained Finnegan, who also emphasises the virtue of having a “no rules” approach when recording music.

“The weirder the better”.

Setting himself apart and adding a distinctive voice to Australia’s strong track record of producing world-class folk singer-songwriters, Dinosaur Beard should be a swift hit for Finnegan as he continues to roll out these charming, well-rounded numbers.

We’re proud to exclusively premiere the dreamlike track here on the AU today so take a listen below and be sure to follow Dinosaur Beard on Facebook for more.
