Loris and the Lion weave gentle tales of joy and loss; a patchwork of sonic delights built by (wo)man and machine to soothe the soul and feed the heart.

A duo from Liverpool, navigating life together accompanied by: fairytales; folktales; lifetales; a piano; a clarinet; a harmonium; a guitar; too many effects pedals; sometimes a tenor recorder; some spooky sounding homemade bells; many other instruments we haven’t discovered yet; a shared love of choral music; an insatiable appetite for tea; a general love of nature (especially trees when looked up at from beneath); Joni Mitchell (naturally); Kate Bush (a first love); love (a second one).

Calling to mind the sounds and spirit of  Joanna Newsom, Tori Amos and Jesca Hoop.

"Loris and the Lion convey  a haunting aura [...] with complex melodies and enchanting vocals from lead singer Georgia Harris, immersing whoever listens in an enveloping, chilling sound."

Bido Lito

"Absolutely gorgeous — ambitious, thoughtful, eerie, and well-constructed."

Two Story Melody

"This song is beautiful, devastating and haunting all rolled into one and I for one cannot wait to hear more from this group. If Waxwing is anything to go by, then we are certainly in for a sonic treat when this group releases more of their music."

Liverpool Noise

"There's both a starkness and delicate tone to the sound that makes for a superb juxtaposition."
