The Boy with the Lion Head formed in the Scottish Borders in 2014, releasing their tender and grand debut album ‘The Ebb and Flow’ in 2015. This quickly earned them slots at King Tut’s supporting Man of Moon and JR Green whilst also gaining them further shows across the central belt, and airplay on BBC and Amazing Radio.
Their follow up EP, 2016’s ‘Everything is Temporary‘, showcased a new level of intensity and purpose from the band and earned them well deserved appearance’s at Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival 2017, the BBC Bandstand at Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Glasgow’s Celtic Connections and they were also invited to play the Tim Peaks Stage at Rec Rock festival by curator Peter Salisbury, former member of The Verve.
Often building songs from quiet intricate introductions towards deliciously intertwined atmospheric guitar and keyboard crescendos, they create an emotive wall of sound playing live. If you want easy comparisons, think Frightened Rabbit and The Twilight Sad.
Following two years spent writing and recording new material, The Boy with The Lion Head are now ready to release their second album, ‘A Half Remembered Dream‘, which promises to see the band build on their signature blend of atmospheric landscapes and haunting melodies.
