“…Petals on a wet black bough.”
A Lion Named Roar is one of the last new artists that we discovered in 2012 and they kick off their eclectic EP titled Foreign Land with the song that appears to be about something or someone beautiful that seemed to burn out bright. “This Won’t Last for Long” will grab you and hold you just to make sure you’re listening, because Foreign Land is an EP that is sure to be the leading candidate for “talks the least, but says the most”. Lasting just over 25 minutes, A Lion Named Roar fires on all cylinders from the from the epic opener, through Desert Wind, all the way to the dreamy acoustic closer, “Ghost In New York City”. The brightest spot for me is the bridge on the track “Remember Me” with the lyrics “Oh baby can it really be love when I’ve been pretending to be what you want?” Foreign Land really strikes the right chord painting a perfect imagery of those heart-wrenching, yet, beautiful moments in life that we’ve all experienced. These songs are apparitions reminding us of the all too familiar faces in the crowd …“Are you going to make your name before the credits roll?”
I am excited about the Indie Lunchbox for the opportunity to share ideas and art. I took an interest in Philosophy during college and really only scratched the surface, so it’s cool to dive into and discuss worlds of different ideas. I love music and writing, but I don’t pay as much attention to it as I’d like now that I’m 27 and life has grown busy, but I am hoping the Indie Lunchbox will change that. Welcome to our new adventure! It’s good to be here.
Born & raised in Upstate New York, I’ve always had a strong passion for independent music/up-and-coming music artists. I practically revolve my life around music and I’ve always been looking for a good way to share with people that have similar interests, or with anyone who is just a little curious. Take a few minutes to check out what we have to say and please feel free to leave a comment, share with your friends, or follow us on Twitter.
