Hailing from Leiden in the Netherlands, “Lion, Meet Lizard” is the electronic solo project of Chris Tieken. This new track, “Day for the Dead”, combines slow beats and melodic guitars with vocals drenched in effects. This results in a mix of indie and electronic sounds and textures, influenced by Tycho, Bonobo and The xx. His debut album “Disappear Here” was released in June 2015. 2016 brought a string of singles released independently as well as a mini-tour in Canada.
This downtempo track really hit me hard. It’s simple nature and calming tone gives you a vibe that is idyllic and almost tranquil. It is also a free download from his SoundCloud page.
