Pet Lions: Soft Right

Pet Lions are a young quartet from Chicago who are peddling their debut EP Soft Right. They sound a bit like Weezer without the bite. Soft Right is a pretty basic indie guitar rock, with a rather cheesy keyboard bubbling under the clean cut vocals of Karl Østby in most of the tracks- innocent good time music with reflective lyrics. The Lions still need to find their own voice. Growling a bit while recording would help.

Pet Lions:
Karl Østby: guitar, vocals
Shuhei Yamamoto: bass, vocals
Tom Owens: guitar, synth
Matt Dahl: drums
