The sound of street Reggae, ska and underground Dub are echoing through the new release from the Urban Lions, “See Me Rise”, this 12 inch has four mixed versions to put the needle to each one having a vibe of its own. They describe the band’s debut single as “combining the band’s roots reggae foundations with a conscious lyric, following a narrative on the evolution of our culture, the strength in unity of the human family and our resistance against the powers that be”.
Urban Lions are a touring band and sound system based in the southwest of England, currently rising up through the underground UK roots and dub scene and out onto the world stage.
While firing up the dance at headline shows all over the UK and overseas with a feisty fusion of roots, dub, steppers, bashment, ska, rocksteady beats, filthy horns, skanking rhythms and conscious rhymes, Urban Lions are putting out tuff recordings both digitally and on vinyl. Look out for the Urban Lions debut album later this year.
