Summer in the CitySleeping Lion
The Boston-based lurid indie pop duo Sleeping Lion was formed by roommates Nate Flaks and Noah Longworth McGuire in the spring of 2015. The first Sleeping Lion songs were written and produced remotely the following summer (via Skype) while Nate was living in Dobbs Ferry, New York, and Noah was living in Rome, Italy. In the fall, the two came together to record in Quincy, Massachusetts. Their first single—“You Made Me”—was released in September 2015 and quickly generated hype around Boston. Their subsequent singles—“Rug” (premiered exclusively on Indie Shuffle) and “Generous” (premiered exclusively on Line of Best Fit)—were featured on various music blogs and Spotify playlists. In July 2016, they released their debut EP Patient Creature, which featured their unique combination of mellow alternative electronic vibes with elements of future-bass. Sleeping Lion is currently playing shows in Boston and NYC and they are expecting to release new music in the near future.
