Having captured the attention of music fans and critics alike with their infectious indie pop songs for years, Pet Lions continue to build on an already solid foundation of material with their latest release, Popular Nature, now available online and in record stores.
Recorded and produced by Neil Strauch (Iron & Wine, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Andrew Bird), the record has been praised as a “lush indie rocker built on propulsive layers and a deft pop sensibility that feels both wistful and energized.” (RCRD LBL)
The band, comprised of Karl Ostby, Shuhei Yamamoto, Joseph Murphy, and Matt Dahl, have been playing together since 2008, landing support slots with White Rabbits, Tennis, The Black Lips, Maps & Atlases, Generationals, Here We Go Magic, and Blues Traveler. Their music has been heard on radio across the world, featured on popular television shows such as Vampire Diaries (The CW), Keeping Up with the Kardashians (E!), and Revenge (ABC), highlighted in publications Nylon Magazine, The Chicago Tribune, and The Huffington Post, and featured in the Ubisoft video game ‘Watch Dogs’.
This summer, Pet Lions will release their newest effort, “Forever Again“, an EP produced by Matt Dewine at Pieholden Suite Sound in Chicago.
