Ten Sleep ~ Lion Cub!

Some songs deserve a lot more airtime and attention and “Lion Cub” by TEN SLEEP is the perfect example of this.   Showcasing a catchy blend of pounding drums, sexy guitars and deeply impassioned vocals,  the three-piece from Ontario have a sound that can stop anyone dead in their tracks.  Where it is easy to forget what they are doing at that moment.  Feeling the urge to turn towards where this great music is calling them from.  And I am no different.  This track simply stops me from doing what I am doing every time I hear it.  Which I believe is the only real way to truly take the song in and to fully appreciate the simple beauty in it.  I love how “Lion Cub” makes an immediate impact on me with beautifully crisp guitar strums on top of a menacing drum tap that hits me straight to my core.  The vocals are tense and spirited with a mix of strength and vulnerability that makes it feel raw and extremely personal.  TEN SLEEP has created a fantastic song that is easy to relate to and I think it is a shame their music might not circulate as much as I think it deserves.  But I am doing my part to spread the good word and if their upcoming ‘Departure’ EP lives up to my now lofty expectations, I just might be happy to be wrong in this case!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
