24 Hour Service Station is proud to introduce a new addition to our label's roster, DADDY LION
Washington, DC's Daddy Lion takes fuzzy indie rock and splits it between insatiable pop hooks, unusual time keys and sparkling harmonies. With a fantastic timelessness mining the past 30 years of pop influences, Daddy Lion handles classic rock/blues type progressions, acoustic introspection and even a brief bout with synth electronic elements. Featuring six memorable moody rockers, the songs on their debut EP cover fragile subjects, but never bog down with sadness. Daddy Lion is ready to hit the road and roar!

"A pleasant surprise... hearty, fuzzy guitar-rock, full of introspective and tortured travelogues, breakdowns and reminisces." - NPR.org
"Daddy Lion is packed with great emotions, and with them is a band that shows great promise." - FensePost
"One of DC's most exciting up-and-coming bands." - An Ocean Of Noise
"Washington, DC's Daddy Lion has got it right." - Impressionable Youth
"Daddy Lion sounds like all of their influences and they’re all the better for it. A hint of Joy Division can be heard on ‘Falling to Pieces‘, Hüsker Dü can be heard on ‘Just Die Young‘ and ‘Morning‘ could easily be a Dinosaur Jr. B-side slow burner." - Cougar Microbes
