Introducing… LION

Rising British singer-song writer LION (real name Beth Lowen) releases her brand new single ‘Oh No’ via Fiction available everywhere now.

The ferocious, jagged rock anthem ‘Oh No’ was written by LION and recorded at London’s Snap Studios with drummer Rich Cooper, who also engineered and produced the track. Lowen’s multi-instrumentalist brother Sam adds bass and keys to the record and plays drums in LION’s raucous live show, adding an electrifying family dynamic. Combining bluesy riffs with soaring choruses and led by LION’s unique rasping howl and deft guitar playing, this track is equal parts The White Stripes and Florence Welch.

‘Oh No’ follows LION’s explosive debut single ‘Self Control’, with the two fierce tracks setting the tone for more music on the horizon “I hope people feel something,” says Lion of her music, “like I do when I’m playing it. Take what you want from it, but feel. I want to make boys cry.”

Despite ‘Oh No’ only being LION’s second single, she has already established herself as a prolific live performer, having played a headline show at The Lexington as well as support slots for the likes of Albert Hammond Jr, The Vaccines, Isaac Gracie, and Girli.
