The live performance moves between subtle melodies and intense noise.

Biography

Marble Lion is a Montreal based band consisting of members Jeremy Jacobson, Jordan Juras, and Karl Thelen. Both Jeremy and Karl come from the Chicago-land area, while Jordan hails from a small town near Windsor, Ontario.

The three members met while attending McGill University in Montreal, Quebec. The band initially came together in September 2011 after a summer of long distance musical exchanges. In late December of that year, Marble Lion released their Foliage EP, which they recorded and released on their own. The EP was mastered with the help of Taylor Smith of BRAIDS. Their guitar-based arrangements incorporate drony loops, sampled beats, and live percussion into an eerie blend of post-rock and witch house.

The trio is currently preparing to set out on their first country-wide tour including stops for both NXNE and Sled Island. They will be touring in support of their newly released Clothing EP out on Halifax based label Clocks and Daggers. The band is armed with a slew of new material and the tour is poised to incept the bands live set deep into the hearts at every stop.

Lyrics

Fly Far Never Stray

Written By: Jordan Juras

Warming slightly, water rights me,
Rise up through my sinking toes,
Salt water stinging in my nose.
All around me, newness meets me,
Through a filter of thought that's grown,
When your version of the world only lets in what it knows.

Take in what you see outside,
You're at the whim of what you keep inside.

Fly far nonsense, distance broken,
Go far but never stray,
Let your kitsch rot you away.
So we set out driving, sense of winding,
Long hours on the road, feel the concrete tickling your soul.

Take in what you see outside,
You're at the whim of what you keep inside,
You're at the whim of what you keep inside!

Clothing

Written By: Jordan Juras

They took off all his clothes,
And they cleansed his soul,
Because his name rhymed with Jesus.

The water evokes,
Crystal thoughts unprovoked,
By the symptoms of a mind,
Subjected by his insecure design.

Hierarchies fall,
When you take note of who you are.

Take of your clothes,
Just take off your clothes.
