It made sense as scenes got fragmented that the best bands would work on a fence, crafting a fusion that could work beyond the niche. That's precisely the simple beauty of A House For Lions, who emerged onto LA's indie-rock scene almost two years ago, and have been drawing attention to themselves ever since. They stand right between alt-folk and alt-rock, singing with penetrating tenderness, playing it raw for those who won't have it too polished, reverberated, distorted for those who 'like it rough' so to speak. It's a blissful blend really, that wraps around you, grips you; their first single especially, 'Let Back', which started things off as it settled in founder Daniel Norman's head and showed him the way.
It's now been over a year since their first EP “I Want Us To Be Remembered”, and no, we haven't forgotten them; so when the new year comes and they're ready to drop this first album they're working on, we'll be there. Meanwhile though, you can see them play at Taix for The Echo Park Rising Festival on August 25th. Streaming below is their new track, an original cover of Tina Turner's classic hit 'What's Love Got To Do With It' - enjoy! - Tracy Mamoun
