Silent Lions - "Runnin' Me Down"

"post-The Third Hand RJD2 with more distorted bass."

"Silent Lions’ world is one where atmosphere and songcraft grease each other’s wheels without competing for dominance. Groovy, sultry and sinister, all three are interwoven like the components of a marble cake."
- PopMatters (8/10)

"Somewhere between the Motor City power of the White Stripes, the cool, disaffected air of Death From Above 1979 and A Tribe Called Quest’s chilled-out, murky funk, the Silent Lions preen and groom themselves."
- Beatroute

"...catchy and dense: the perfectly solemn lovechild of blue-eyed 70s soul and The Cure’s 1979 debut, Three Imaginary Boys."
- Rascal Mag

Silent Lions debut "Runnin' Me Down" video with Impose + on tour now, dates below!

"...concerned with the darker side of The Black Keys-esque heavy stoner soul-rock." - Impose

Conceived in Toledo, OH with a home base in sister city Detroit, Silent Lions are the sinister twosome of heavy-soul. Dean Tartaglia simultaneously plays affected octave bass, sampled synths, and manipulated atmospheric vocals, all while drummer Matt Klein grooves and thrashes beside him, often providing soulful singalong melodies and harmonies. The duo’s live shows sound as thick and creamy as they do on record. Their music has been tagged as “heavy soul,” “chill punk” and “Hall and Oates backed by Rage Against The Machine.”
Silent Lions’ sophomore six-song EP, The Compartments, is a deeper exploration into genre manipulation. From hip-hop to stoner rock, Silent Lions create moments of lo-fi chaos out of hi-fi clarity. With their unofficial third member Zach Shipps (Electric Six) producing, The Compartments takes enough risks to turn your head, but never strays from SiLi’s visceral, trademark, super sub bass and drum sound.
Dean started making his mark nationally with Detroit local legends The Sights, touring the U.S. and Europe supporting Tenacious D. Silent Lions are proud to continuously share bills with some of the best artists in the scene (Mr. Gnome, Jamaican Queens, Foxy Shazam, Stepdad, The Soil & The Sun).
Silent Lions’ The Compartments EP was released on January 14, 2014 on vinyl, digital & CD formats through the band’s own label, Nah Collective.
