Singer/songwriter Justin Bachulak's soulful, reverb-laden vocals and horror movie synths flow like a river with dream-weaving guitarist Dustin's Lau's swells and pedal work which add space and emotion to The Leones haunting yet natural sound.
Currently evolving into vibey, dream-pop The Leones don't miss a chance to explore their dark side moving from chilling, minor 7th chord ghost stories that transition into uplifting, major choruses.
Backed by vintage bass lines and soundscape synths from Wren William Werner and dynamic drumming from Kevin Carney the quartet touch on everything from the desolate end of Neil Young and Crazy Horse, into Jim James and The War on Drugs territory and most currently, Beach House and Wild Nothing.
Their slew of synthy, horror stories are featured on the October 2016 release - “Ghost in the City”. Including the Twin Peaks inspired “Fire Walk With Me” and the desolate, minor keyed “Eyes”.
The band's upcoming Summer 2017 release "Songs From The Canyon" focus on the explorations of finding one’s self out on the open road of the West. The driving opener, "Coast" sets the stage while the chorus of "Dealer" explodes with layers of lush vocals and searing synths. Their 16 minute opus “Canyon” is filled with peaks and valleys that are sure to create deep connections with listeners. Carlos Castaneda would dig!
