Et tu, Beta Lion?

Beta Lion take a variety of paths to get to their downcast dream-pop; sometimes songs are built around a serpentine bass line, and others are powered by a buzzy guitar riff. But this quartet always gets to a soaring, arena-ready chorus. – Ben Salmon, San Diego CityBeat

Beta Lion: Getting set to release the Kraken… in a bit.

Check out the Beta Lion blog for an update on their next EP, “Written In Sand.” Coming sooner than later on Villains Records!

So this CD is a little bit more of a “Do-It-Together” (D.I.T.?) project… Whether or not it’s well received is an entirely different thing.  If people were to hate the Written In Sand EP, that’d be fine.  At least I wouldn’t have any excuses to give.

Written In Sand Update 12/30/13:  “Prologues to Epilogues.”

Release The Kraken!
