Dande and The Lion is an indie pop-rock band, prowling the local music scene with infectious rhythms and lingering harmonies.
Dande and The Lion had a busy 2018 and 2019 with the release of two EPs, clocking in over 100 gigs, which included two tours up and down the east coast of Australia selling out shows at Sydney’s iconic Oxford Art Factory and Wollongong’s Rad Bar (not bad for a no-label, unmanaged, self-funded “don’t quit your day-job!” band)!
Hailing from various areas of Sydney, Australia and bonding over their love of music, these Lions have grown into a close-knit family maintaining a hardworking, independent approach off stage, and a charismatic, all-smiling live energy on stage.
With four songwriters in the band they've managed to blend their individual influences into a fun, explosive joyride, guaranteed to keep your pulse meter ticking!
"...they're a band whose success comes with longevity, promised in how the two singles compare and contrast with one another while offering similar, but distinctly different sounds. It's a difficult thing to crack - let alone fairly early on in a career - but something Dande and the Lion knocked out of the park from the get-go" - Pile Rats 2019
"While ‘Stardust’ was a easygoing synth odyssey with a soundscape that made you feel like you were flying gently through space, ‘Twilight Highway’ feels like a soundtrack to a night out at Studio 54, complete with an explosion of confetti and people dancing in the streets." - Good Intent 2019
