Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs plans fan-made video
Orlando Higginbottom has invited his fans to help create the video for new single 'Household Goods'.
Fans have been asked to send in home-made videos, which will be compiled and featured in the video, the latest release off TEED's debut LP, Trouble.
Orlando has said of the video:
"I'm excited to announce that we're going to release 'Household Goods' with a special remix package this August, a bit like we did with 'Garden' except this time I don’t want to make a new video... I want you to make a new video.
We want you all to get involved and send us your own performance to 'Household Goods'. The more outlandish and exciting the better. Be it dance routine or straight to camera performance in a strange location, this is your time to shine.
We're going to edit together the best entries and make a whole new video. Plus we will also be holding our own mini Oscars with awards for Best Location, Costume, Dance Routine etc.
You can do whatever you want. We can't wait to see what you are going to get up to..."
The deadline for all submissions is 30th July. For more information on where to send entries, head here.

Purchase and listen
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs will release the 'Tapes & Money' single via Polydor on April 2nd, and it features remixes from Clams Casino, Eats Everything and MJ Cole alongside the original version. Joining all that lot will be this effort from John Talabot who dropped his own album 'fin' earlier this year. All but the chorus is gone vocal-wise, making it a chilled out reconstruction of the dance heavy original. [read more]
London duo, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, have released this delicious free track, 'Dream On'. It’s very much in keeping with what we’ve heard from them so far, and the instant you press play, involuntary dancing will affect even the most stubborn of movers and shakers. [read more]
