24 Hour Artists
Washington, DC's Daddy Lion takes fuzzy indie rock and splits it between insatiable pop hooks, unusual time keys and sparkling harmonies. With a fantastic timelessness mining the past 30 years of pop influences, Daddy Lion handles classic rock/ blues type progressions, acoustic introspection and even a brief bout with synth electronic elements. Featuring six memorable moody rockers, the songs on their debut EP cover fragile subjects, but never bog down with sadness. Written, recorded and performed by a twenty-something in his bedroom, this is as DIY as it gets.
