Following the unveiling of their new single ‘Khaleesi’, today Lisbon announce details of their much anticipated debut EP, ‘Life Is Good’ – due for release on August 7th.
‘Life Is Good’ is described by the band as a celebration of youth, depicting the spontaneous nature of growing up. This vibrant compilation explores the excitement of adolescence – from embarking on journeys into the unknown in search of acceptance and happiness (‘I Don’t Know‘ & ‘Natïve’), to reflecting a generation’s obsession with popular culture (‘Khaleesi‘).
Their debut EP is the first release on new label Think Tank? Records. It also features ‘Good 2 Me‘, a new song born through the band’s electronic influences from acts such as Snakehips and FKJ. This outburst of love appears twice on this eagerly anticipated release, secondly as a remix from up and coming producer J Tropic.
New single, the Game of Thrones inspired ‘Khaleesi’ follows on from Lisbon’s previous tracks including the Gil Norton produced ‘I Don’t Know’ and ‘Native’ which recently surpassed one million Spotify plays in just a matter of months.
Hailing from the coastal town of Whitley Bay near Newcastle, Lisbon have already drawn a considerable fan-base in their native North, selling out sizeable venues such as Newcastle’s O2 Academy and Riverside, as well as headlining the region’s biggest festival Evo Emerging. The young four-piece recently kicked off their first headline UK tour which continues this month, culminating with a show at London’s Barfly on July 22nd.
With a BBC Introducing Maida Vale session already under their belts, support amongst XFM and BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and Greg James, as well as their first headline tour underway, it won’t be long until Lisbon are put firmly on the map.
