Melbourne based 4 piece, Farewell the lion do not try and create a whole new musical genre nor expect to have one named after them. Instead, we focus on writing and performing well crafted songs without pretention or attitude. With influences from Wilco, Radiohead, The Posies and The National we focus on letting the best idea in each song win rather than forcing a certain sound.
Band members John McIntosh (Vocals/Guitar), Marlene Samson (Vocals/Keys), Leigh Marlow (Drums) and Sam Elliffe (Bass) have been together since June 2010 and have worked up an albums worth of songs for the live set. http://farewellthelion.com/music/
