Bio

Influenced by acts such as Talking Heads, LCD Soundsystem, The Meters and Prince amongst, basically, anything with a good beat, Tin Lion’s music is a swirling mix of big drums, spacey synths, heavy bass and percussive guitar. Music as much for your head as for your feet.

Tin Lion has been described as ‘a sprawling exploration into the ways which rock and electronic can combine in a cohesive and mesmerizing manner’ by Undertow Magazine and ‘truly the reincarnation of the late LCD Soundsystem’ by Melissa Scheinberg of Unrecorded and has dominated the JJJ Unearthed charts and gained rotation with singles 'Best Pants’ and ’No Clothes’.

Having supported Lorde, Oliver Tank, Harts and The Aston Shuffle off the back of debut 'From Space With Love', Tin Lion is now preparing to release a five track EP entitled ‘Secrets’, leading with the single ‘Make The Scene’.

On first listen it's slightly dumb but shamelessly fun. On second it's wry and book smart. Still fun though. On third listen I see a tent full of kids jumping like crazy to an extra-long-milk-it-for-all-it's-worth finale. I dig this jam.

This is your invitation to an odd place. Come in, explore, dance a little, stay. You will submit to the groove.
