Eliza and the Bear – Lion’s Heart review

Maybe you saw them on tour two years ago, playing arenas with Paramore, or more recently supporting Twin Atlantic alongside lonely the brave – or maybe you heard their incredibly infectious Friends on an advert. However you’ve heard of Eliza and the Bear, they’re growing to a point where they’re nigh on unavoidable, and it’s not a bad thing. The momentum they’ve been building up is finally close to reaching a peak, with their latest single Lion’s Heart accompanying the news of their forthcoming self titled debut album, set for release of February 19th on Capitol Records.

It’s three minutes long, it’s a punchy, sing-with-your-friends anthem, Lion’s Heart is everything you could want in a radio friendly, indie-rock single; but then, Eliza and the Bear are everything you could hope for in an up and coming band. They’ve taken a timeless, soundtrack-of-teenage-years feel and crammed it into a burst of soaring hooks and uplifting, inspiring lyricism. Speaking of the track, frontman James Kellegher said, “Lion’s Heart is a song telling someone that they are an absolute hero, but they don’t even know it. It’s about finding your own strength.”
