Brontosaurus is the dynamic duo of Nicholas Kelley and Nicholas Papaleo. Formed in Chicago in 2010 as an outlet for their sometimes pretty, sometimes eerie pop constructions. Drawing inspiration from a variety of sources as well as their varied musical upbringing (classical/indie rock/metal/prog), Brontosaurus performs their songs using all 8 limbs, often at the same time, as well as intertwining their distinct voices to create a powerful and and entertaining live experience. Brontosaurus' debut LP, Cold Comes To Claim, released in 2011 on the revered Chicago label Plus Tape owes as much to the sound and feel of Tin Pan Alley as it does to the Pacific Northwest of the late nineties. Cold Comes To Claim runs the gamut - from sweeping grandeur to math-induced freak-outs. 2011 brought much touring throughout the U.S. (including stops for SXSW in Austin, Musicfest in PA, and Middlewest Fest in IL). Brontosaurus has shared the stage with such national acts as Maps & Atlases, Suuns, Des Ark, and Maserati to name a few. 2012 brings more touring and a bevy of new songs slated to be record late 2012.
