hmv's Next Big Thing... #108 Tired Lion

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Australian indie types Tired Lion...


Who Are They?

Newly signed to Island Records and fresh from a very successful run supporting The 1975 across their native Australia, 2017 looks like it'll be a big one for foursome Tired Lion, who are singer/guitarist Sophie Hopes, guitarist Matt Tanner, drummer Ethan Darnell and bassist Nick Vasey. 


Who Do They Sound Like?

The most obvious comparisons are Veruca Salt and early Smashing Pumpkins, with their feedback drenched riffola and sweet as you like choruses, but you can hear plenty of the Pixies, early Weezer and Placebo in there too. 


Why Should I Be Excited?

Big, dirty, slamming riffs and naggingly brilliant melodies, it's a potent combination. 


Can I Hear Something?

For sure, you can hear their new track 'Agoraphobia' below and check out their early singles here in our digital store.
