What sound comes to mind for electronic music? You might think of house, techno, trance, or any other number of sub-genres and sub-sub-genres. Folk house anyone?
For electronic duo Sleeping Lion (Nate Flaks, vocals/percussion/keys; Noah McGuire, production/vocals/keys/guitar), genre labels are only so helpful. What’s most important to Nate and Noah when creating music? An outpouring of their lives: the more real the music the lyrics are, the more their songs will connect with their listeners.
That means using sampled sound effects from their own lives, and lyrically, saying what they want to say.
In this video, get a glimpse of their sound, and listen to the Sleeping Lion song “Stop It.”
