Oh No '“Â here comes singer-songwriter Lion
RisingÂ British singer-song writer Lion, real name Beth Lowen,Â is making waves with her new single, Oh No.
TheÂ ferocious, jagged rock anthem Oh NoÂ was written by Lion, and recorded atÂ London's Snap Studios with drummer Rich Cooper, who also engineered andÂ produced the track.
Lowen's multi-instrumentalist brother Sam adds bass andÂ keys to the record and plays drums in Lion's raucous live show, adding anÂ electrifying family dynamic. Combining bluesy riffs with soaring choruses andÂ led by Lion's unique rasping howl and deft guitar playing, theÂ track is equalÂ partsÂ The White Stripes and Florence Welch. OhÂ NoÂ follows theÂ explosive debut single Self Control,Â with the two fierce tracks setting the tone for more music on the horizon.
'˜IÂ hope people feel something,'Â says Lion of her music, '˜like I do when I'mÂ playing it. Take what you want from it, but feel. I want toÂ make boys cry.' Despite thisÂ only being herÂ second single, she has already established herself asÂ a prolific live performer, having played a headline show at renowned venue The LexingtonÂ asÂ well as support slots for the likes of Albert Hammond Jr, The Vaccines, IsaacÂ Gracie, and Girli, plus setsÂ at SXSW, The Great Escape and Dot ToÂ Dot festival earlier this year.
