Four Lions are (not surprisingly) a four-piece outfit hailing from Bendigo Victoria who have released their new single ‘Twenty Seven’ ahead of their debut album release later this year.
It’s safe to say that Four Lions have a distinct alt-country sound to their music, which I guess is in part inspired by their regional roots. Headed by a strong set of male vocals, and backed by a delicate drawl of acoustic chords, ‘Twenty Seven’ is a real slow burner. It has this ability to capture a feeling of emptiness that really allows you to develop a connection to the track. With their debut album ‘Charring Cross’ due out at the end of September, you won’t have to wait long to get another taste.
The Groovin’ the Moo festival is back to hit its usual regional haunts of Canberra, Townsville, Maitland, Bendigo and Bunbury this April and early May. Featuring a cracking line-up of local stars including Tame Impala and The Temper Trap, international acts such as Frightened Rabbit and The Kooks and rising local talent by the likes of Alpine, Flume and Last Dinosaurs, GTM 2013 is promising to be one hell of a festival.
