It’s okay if you haven’t heard of Androcles and the Lion yet. A shame, but it’s okay. You’re hearing about them now. In a town riddled with indie rock/pop star wannabes, AatL stands out by creating lovely, drifting melodies tinged with a bit of sadness.
Take the band’s latest EP As Far As Blindness Could See for example. Each of the seven songs describe a different layer in the giant cake of sadness. There’s wistful remembrance, longing, regret, and so much more packed into a small, wonderful EP.
So if you’re looking for a talented group of folk to sing your problems away as you stare into your pint of choice, look no further. They play Farm 255 this Friday.
