Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Lost Like Lions. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and liked their music a lot.
The sound of this band gave me the impression of being highly sought after from the very first notes.
I immediately realized that I was faced with musicians with a lot of experience behind them and with great compositional skills.
The new single Back To Life is a beautiful rock song with powerful distorted guitars and an epic and nostalgic melodic line.
I liked the overall sound very much as in the production the low frequencies are emphasized which makes the sound in general solid and mature.
Lost Like Lions offer 90s-inspired rock that manages to be modern at the same time. The chord progression is never predictable and banal and the listener is entertained from the first to the last second.
A nice discovery that I recommend to everyone.
Back To Life is Lost Like Lions’ Single Out Now!
Powerful and Mature!
Lost Like Lions started in the spring of 2014 when Derrik (Vocals/Guitar) began writing songs right around when his old band broke up. That Summer he went out to Los Angeles to record the debut ep “The Way of The World” which featured guest vocals from Aj Perdomo (The Dangerous Summer), and Jon Lullo (Down To Earth Approach/The Seams).
Shortly after the recording of “The Way of The World”, Derrik enlisted a lineup including Jamie Bigaj (Guitar) who played with Derrik in his old band. Unfortunately, that run was short-lived and life got in the way. After only 3 shows the band had stopped, the last show being in April of 2015. Fast forward to the Summer of 2018, Derrik and Jamie ran into each other at a local music show in their hometown of Buffalo, NY. This is where the first discussions began regarding reforming Lost Like Lions. This led to Derrik writing songs again. Those tracks ultimately ended up being the “NAVIGATE” ep.
Derrik recruited Jamie back, as well as adding Jim Kaczmarski on drums. In the Summer of 2019, the band began work on what would ultimately become “The Devil That You Know” ep which ended up getting released in the Spring of 2020, and would include the single “Enemies” on it. After following that release up with a string of fun local shows, the band then started work on their newest batch of songs in the Summer of 2021. Demoing 5 new tracks with producer Chris Flury in Brooklyn, New York, the band then took those back to their hometown of Buffalo, New York to finish up what would ultimately become their newest ep “Fear of Letting Go”, which is due to release in the Spring of 2022. The first single off of that offering, “BackTo Life” is the perfect track to lead this new era of the band, starting off with the lead line “I saw the sunrise, and it brought me back to life”.
