Lions are a 3 piece, bassless, electronic edged, post rock band. They write largely instrumental guitar based compositions based around dynamic shifts. If you were lazy you could compare them to a younger, more energetic Mogwai.

Biography

Lions are a 3 piece, bassless, electronic edged post rock group from Bexhill On Sea. They've been active for little over 18 months and released 2 E.Ps, 'Pop Idle' and 'American Idle'.

The influences of this band are eclectic and not worth listing, but they are often compared to Mogwai. Their first E.P was awarded 8/10 by Rocksound Magazine (July 2010) and their second E.P was released in a very limited edition batch of 50 in individual, hand painted recycled card board cases. All of Lions back catalogue is available to download for free online as they believe that music is a necessity, not a commodity.

Here is a review of their second E.P from Brighton based magazine, The Source;

"American Idle (lionsaresmarterthaniam.bandcamp.com)
A follow-up from last year’s ‘Pop Idle’ release, this local post-rock outfit are developing an acute sound, putting them far away from anything you’ve heard before. Clearly those masters of the genre Mogwai have been a big influence on the band, but only as an omniscient presence – watching over this trio as they utilise various pedals and effects to make their own recipe for powerful, melodic and predominantly lyricless music. You can listen to first single ‘Galbras’ and download their first EP online. (JC)"
