Rising British singer-songwriter LION has released her new single 'Fiction' via We Are Hear & Fiction Records. The track is the third to be taken from her debut self-titled EP.
A live favorite, "Fiction" is a high-energy riff heavy track combining jagged guitars, smashing drums and her incredibly raw unique voice. "I wrote Fiction about being lied to and how obvious it can be when someone is lying," says LION. "It's pretty crazy what people think they can get away with. This song is like my way of confronting that - whether it's in politics or my own relationships."
Her debut self-penned four track EP was 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. The EP's previous singles "Oh No
" debuted #1 at SubModern Radio
after her #2 debut at the same format for "Self Control."
2018 has seen LION play The Great Escape, Dot To Dot, Reeperbahn, Latitude and Boardmasters festivals, support the likes of Albert Hammond Jr. The Vaccines, Isaac Gracie and Girli, and sell out her own headline shows at The Lexington and Camden Assembly. Last single "Oh No
" has been championed across the airwaves - receiving its first play from Steve Lamacq on his BBC 6 Music
show, and was playlisted on BBC Radio
1. LION heads to Eurosonic Festival in Groningen in January 2019 as Steve Lamacq's choice for BBC Introducing.
