Lions LionsLions Lions Grounded EP is the ultimate tease. Hell, to be honest, Lions Lions Grounded EP will probably piss you off since it consists of a new song, an acoustic offering and a music video, which, above all else, will leave you craving more because everything here is so damn good. The title track shows flashes of a mature step that this young band is capable of taking, not unlike Story of the Year’s” “Anthem of Our Dying Day,” combining genuine call-and-responses moments with bombastic hooks; a sonic aesthetic that fans of Lions Lions should surely be accustomed to by now. What follows is a heartbreaking unplugged version of To Carve Our Names’ highlight “the Right Steps,” as well as an iTunes exclusive video of standout track “Milestones,” a clip that perfectly captures the true destructive chaos of a Lions Lions live show. Since the Grounded EP is only two songs long, make sure you have the repeat button firmly pressed.
