LION Debut EP Out Now
Video for ‘Oh No’ Out Now
Having just played a rip-roaring show at a sold out Camden Assembly last night, rising British artist LION (aka Beth Lowen) releases her explosive self-titled debut EP today along with a brand new video for current single ‘Oh No’.

The four track EP, released on Fiction Records, was written by LION and recorded at London’s Snap Studios with producer Rich Cooper. Combining bluesy riffs with soaring choruses and led by LION’s unique rasping vocal prowess and deft guitar playing, the ‘LION’ EP is equal parts The White Stripes and Florence Welch.

Live favourite ‘Fiction’ is a high-energy rock workout combining jagged guitars, smashing drums and her unique voice. The EP also includes debut single ‘Self Control’, current single ‘Oh No’ (already receiving huge support from 6 Music & Radio 1) and the understated ‘Garden’. Speaking of the EP LION said ‘releasing music for the first time has been such a daunting, but extremely exciting experience. My self-titled EP gives a small taste of who I am from playing acoustic gigs in pubs as a teenager to expressing myself with a distorted guitar’.
LION’s multi-instrumentalist brother Samuel T. Lowen adds bass and keys on the EP and plays drums in LION’s raucous live show, adding an electrifying family dynamic which has already seen them play The Great Escape, Dot To Dot and Boardmasters festivals, support the likes of Albert Hammond Jr, The Vaccines and Girli, and sell out their own headline shows at The Lexington and Camden Assembly. LION plays the following shows next month, including a slot at Germany’s Reeperbahn Festival
Thurs 20th Hamburg, Reeperbahn Festival
Sat 22nd MANCHESTER, Victoria Warehouse – The British Sound Project
