Creating a name for yourself as a band just trying to break out is an arduous process. However, when you find something that works, you run with it, and LISBON‘s most recent effort, “Shark,” delves into all of these feelings with a heavier style than their previous work. They certainly aren’t shying away from their opinion of the shadier side of things, and the tone they’ve created from the lyrics alone couples well with their exploration into broader and heavier instrumentation.

Many people have dealt with and seen the “sharks” they sing about, and LISBON clearly has no reservations when it comes to outing them in a song. A little courage goes a long way sometimes. For you UK fans, they embarking on a tour soon, and we’ve got the dates and tickets listed below. In the mean time, enjoy “Shark” while you search for a show near you!

[Alt-Pop] Lisbon – Native


The boys from Newcastle have done it again. Lisbon released ‘Native’ off their debut EP ‘Life Is Good’ a few days ago, a catchy alt-pop piece that tells the story of taking chances and traveling into the unknown, finding yourself along the way. The boys blend all of their sounds together from the vocals to the guitars to the electronic melodies in such a fitting fashion. There is no way to turn this song on and not get up and dance, go ahead, try not to, I dare you.
