Daddy Lion is a four-piece indie powerpop band based out of Columbia, SC. The Washington Post has described their music as a "denser, woolier take on Bob Mould-inspired, early-'90s college rock" and NPR Music called it "a pleasant surprise... full of introspective and tortured travelogues, breakdowns and reminisces." Several of their records were released on 24 Hour Service Station Records alongside legendary artists such as Peter Hook (Joy Division, New Order). They have opened for acts such as Kurt Cobain's fav Shonen Knife and Tim Kasher of Cursive. Their musical backgrounds are diverse - from playing in hardcore bands to studying classical composition. Fused together, their sound is pop-laden, yet subtly experimental, and texturally dense. They seek to embrace, but challenge the listener.
