2-Canadian Band:

Lioness came together, almost in secret, in Toronto in the winter of 2007, when Jeff Scheven and Ronnie Morris, the rhythm section behind the dark, stomping disco pulses of controller.controller, hooked up with Vanessa Fischer of soul-punk quartet No Dynamics. Honing their craft by playing low-key after-hours sets in sweaty, off-the-radar locales throughout the city, the band nonetheless generated a remarkable undercurrent of buzz in the following months, leading to support slots with the likes of !!!, Hercules and Love Affair, You Say Party! We Say Die! and K-OS.

Their sans-guitar sound is like a head-on collision of old and new, as Fischer draws upon jazz, old soul and blues, roaring and moaning over layers of electronic squall and elastic rhythms like a witch in heat. It’s a clash of organic and synthetic, the sound of disco and house music filtered and distorted through the instrumental apparatus of live rock and roll. The band recorded and mixed their debut EP with Rob Sanzo at Signal To Noise in Toronto. Their self-titled EP Lioness was released October 21st 2008 on New Romantic.

Lioness released Omens, Oracles and Signs - Volume 1, on New Romantic April 7th, 2009.
