Letters to Lions is poised to be the indie band of 2018. They band has the truly remarkable ability of being able to write these huge, arena-ready rock songs that sound like if Matt Healy of The 1975 teamed up with Young The Giant to create the super-group the genre didn’t know that it needed. The Sydney, Australia based quartet is currently working on the follow up to their 2015 EP, Clean Eating, and it’s shaping up to be the record that catapults them into the limelight.
Today, we’re streaming a brand new song called “Come Around.” The track perfectly captures the essence of Letters to Lions– marrying their polished brand of melodic guitar melodies with the wild and raucous energy of life on the road to create the kind of song that begs for an open stretch of highway, windows down, and the radio cranked up just a little too loud. If “Come Around” is any indication of what’s to come from the rest of this still unnamed release, it’s clear that Letters to Lions has spent the last two years doing more than just building from the foundation laid by Clean Eating. They built something, destroyed it, and replaced it with something even more powerful.
When asked about the song, Letters to Lions said “We went out with “Come Around” as our first single for the record as it’s the most upbeat and driven of the songs. It’s a feel good song about life change and the anxiety that accompanies it. We were all living together in a house at the time experiencing some pretty heavy life circumstances, the general vibe of the song is about overcoming adversity and clawing our way out of the hole we had dug.”

“Come Around” is the first single from a TBA EP coming out in early 2018. The song will hit streaming services everywhere on October 20th.
