Yesterday Aspen Tide released their debut single, Lions, and this first outing from the Glasgow four piece sees them going into 2011 on a high.
Lions is a stomper of a track and the perfect antidote to the onset of winter.
Frontman Robi Lambie’s precursor lyrics of ‘I am the ripples, you are the calm’ could not be more fitting, as the early refrain is broken in style with a raucous assault of a chorus.
There are many phases to Lions, with a barrage of change ups, and it is an extremely well grafted piece of alt-rock and an excellent debut.
You’ll need to buy Lions to hear it in full – which I’d highly recommend – but you can listen to a teaser on myspace.
