Hailing from Perth, Western Australia, Tired Lion have had a great couple of years. They won Australia’s prestigious triple j Unearthed Award, claimed the WAM Award for Best Rock Act (beating out the likes of Tame Impala and Pond) and supported the likes of The 1975. Showing no signs of slowing down, in 2016 the band signed to Island Records in the UK and found themselves playing Glastonbury and Latitude Festival.
Talking about their sound, Tired Lion said – “We’re all about the raw honesty in the music we make. If you sit back and take in the energy of what we are playing and what it’s all about, it’s a direct view into the looking glass that is collectively our lives – be it happy, sad or confusing. We’re passionate about bringing to people a fresh take on what is a nostalgic sound, keeping the guitars loud and trying to evoke some kind of feeling for the listener with dynamics and melody.”
