Paper Lions + The Burley Griffin - Transit Bar

Event Description

"Paper Lions Are About To Be Canada's Hottest New Dance Pop Export." - Baeble Music

Canadian Indie-Pop mainstays, Paper Lions have carved out a special niche in the modern music landscape. Years of touring their impressive live show, consistently releasing infectious albums and a bit of luck from a surprise youtube hit ('Travelling' now sits at over 8 million views), Paper lions has enjoyed a steady and deserved rise to prominence.

Full Colour, see Paper Lions at their most bold. Taking much of 2015 off to focus on writing, the band made a collective effort to push themselves to write bigger hooks, brighter melodies and smarter arrangements. The result is a 10 song collection that tows the line between Indie Rock and Synth Pop.

Paper Lions are excited to have The Burley Griffin open up the night!

The Burley Griffin have been making friends throughout the Australian music scene, with their uniquely alt-country, folk n’roll sound and high energy stage show.

After an extended solo tour/hitch hiking adventure spanning the United States, songwriter Evan Buckley returned to his hometown of Canberra in 2011 and began assembling what would soon become The Burley Griffin.

Featuring the wildly distinctive guitar work of lead guitarist Henry King and solid rhythm section in bassist Steve Paillas and drummer Sam McNair, The Burley Griffin have refined their sound, drawn from a broad church of influences, crafting a sonic palette that seamlessly swings from buoyant pop to blistering, guitar driven rock.

Working with local recording mastermind Sam King at Merloc Studios to capture the raw energy of the band, the self-titled release features song-writing from both Evan Buckley and drummer, Sam McNair, treading rugged new territory in your favourite well-worn shoes.
