Indie Pop (Chicago)
Pet lions are rarely a good idea. But the eclectic music of Pet Lions, the Chicago-based Indie Rock foursome, is exploding with good ideas. With tasteful, wiry Post Punk guitar, synth touches and smooth hooks that’ll creep into your brain and build a new home, the group — which has played around Chicago with similarly-minded acts like White Rabbits and Maps & Atlases — is currently on the road supporting its first long-player, Houses, released just a few months ago to great reviews.
