Once and Future Kings / Press

“[Dead Lions] treads in the shallow waters between Radiohead and Explosions in the Sky, using pretty piano-and-guitar-laced textures to build into big rock codas time and again ... the record feels somehow still, as though the action sits permanently in one pretty-but-punchy place.”

“Once & Future Kings make spacious indie rock suggestive of Radiohead's The Bends”

“Their becoming smiles and able manners find you no reason to discount their nature, still an eye is kept keenly upon them rather than not.”

“Somewhat reminiscent of late Beatles stuff...”

Joe Norkus (The Face) - Joe and Joe's Local Show, WCOM

“...interwoven guitar parts, transcendental washes of delay, nontraditional pop structure at its best...tiny hints of math thrown into a mind rock mix. Great tonalities all around (be it Jesse's vocals or Rush's Mustang) and perceptive drumming that goes beyond practiced tightness.”

“...their graceful pop carriage moves in a choreographed sashay whose moody, atmospheric pulse evokes Radiohead’s dramatic air...Edison keenly channels Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne—his willowy vocals mingling with the band’s lilting, distorted psych-pop shimmer.”
