    “As the night went on, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs had full control of the room, exploding confetti into the crowd and unleashing blow-up dinosaur toys. Higginbottom played some of his older, instrumental tracks and devolved his set into more of a DJ showcase....Trouble remains one of my favourite albums of the year and Higgenbottom completely owned the room.” - Redefine mag

    “This was honestly one of the best gigs I’ve been to in a long time and one of my highlights from this year. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaur’s latest album is so textured and filled with so many tiny precise details that I’ll now be listening to it regularly for at least the remainder of the year.” - Skiddle
