Dinosaur Pile-Up – Derail

I’ve thought long and hard about this, as if you’ve read my About page it rails against the effect that Simon Cowell has had on music in the UK.

So, when a video lands in my inbox that features someone from The X-Factor I have to ask myself “do I post about it?”. Well, in this instance I do.

Dinosaur Pile-Up are releasing their second album Nurture Nature on the 17th June, and Derail will be released the day before as the lead single.

The video itself takes inspiration from two of the greats of cinema, Alfred Hitchcock and Quentin Tarantino, and stars a female who originally found fame on The X-Factor as a policewoman with a secret to hide. To be fair to her, she does seem to be spreading her wings and moving away from her origins.

The song itself is a highly polished indie track that shows maturity and a good song-writing strength.
