"Album Review: Beta Lion's "Written In Sand" review by Music Emissions."

"In a market saturated with indie rock bands who all try to sound so different that they end up sounding the same, Beta Lion actually do sound different enough to make them stand out from the crowd. 4/5 Stars."

"Album Review: Beta Lion's "Written In Sand" review by SD CityBeat"

"this quartet always gets to a soaring, arena-ready chorus that often sounds like Phoenix’s popsavant brain tugging on Death Cab for Cutie’s heartstrings."

"Album Review: Beta Lion's "Written In Sand" review by Some Kind of Muffin"

"Beta Lion’s Written In Sand invites the listener to be a part of an audience... From the very beginning Written In Sand feels like a larger effort than it’s five tracks would seem to imply. Beta Lion are creating an experience that feels like a mini concept album."

"Show Review: Beta Lion @ The Zombie Lounge"

"if you like to sing "oooohs" and "ahhhs" along with a sweet band, Beta Lion are definitely worth checking out...As I mentioned to the band, if music doesn't work out with Op, he really should get into stand up comedy. The kid had great stage banter and after was cracking everyone up." - SD Dialed In.

"Demo Review: The 2012 Great Demo Review."

“'Love Aside' is that perfect blend of pop, dance and alternative that makes the pretty girls swoon and gives everyone a good excuse to hit the dance floor." - SD City Beat


Still working on that hot first release.



Beta Lion is a band of brothers, cousins, and best friends. They are a four-piece indie rock band whose high-concept lyrics are cleverly, neatly, and artfully packaged into catchy pop rock songs. Coming from an area in San Diego that historically produces more gangs than bands, Beta Lion is like a rare urban mythological creature.

Beta Lion's 2014 release "Written In Sand" (available on iTunes; was well reviewed by critics (See press section), and has received airplay in both the U.S. and in the U.K.

Beta lion is currently in the studio, working on their first full-length album "Urban Mythological," to be released in the spring of 2016 by Villains Records. The first single off of the upcoming album, "Dynasty" is set to release in early December 2015.
