ABOUT

 

Loris and the Lion weave gentle tales of joy and loss; a patchwork of sonic delights to soothe the soul and feed the heart.

An alt-folk duo from Liverpool, navigating life together accompanied by: fairytales; folktales; lifetales; a piano; a clarinet; a harmonium; a guitar (often bowed); too many effects pedals; sometimes a tenor recorder; some homemade bells; many other instruments they haven’t discovered yet; a shared love of choral music; an insatiable appetite for tea; a general love of nature (especially trees when looked up at from beneath); Joni Mitchell (naturally); Kate Bush (a first love); love (a second one).

Calling to mind the sounds and spirit of  Joanna Newsom, Tori Amos and Jesca Hoop.

"This is contemporary Folk at its best."

"Their music is filled with the most exquisite lyrics that are accompanied by fragile piano, swarming strings and gossamer melodies."

Loris and the Lion convey  a haunting aura [...] with complex melodies and enchanting vocals from lead singer Georgia Harris, immersing whoever listens in an enveloping, chilling sound."

"Absolutely gorgeous — ambitious, thoughtful, eerie, and well-constructed."

"There's both a starkness and delicate tone to the sound that makes for a superb juxtaposition."
