The track is twinned with the band’s stunning debut track, ‘Two Prongs’, ahead of their debut EP released in 2014.
‘Longhorns’, produced by the band (Guy Bangham – Vocals, Guitar, Zal Jones – Drums, Ozzy Ellis – Guitar, Vocals, Josh Erişkin – Bass, Vocals) alongside Tarek Musa (Stealing Sheep, Jethro Fox), was inspired by two of Guy’s best friends moving to Texas, and their newfound local college football team (also called Longhorns). It’s a fitting tribute to distant friendship and being left behind…
Brighton four-piece Lion Bark met at music college, but dropped out before the end of the first year.
All four live together in a flat overlooking the sea, working part-time as a postman and in cafes/call-centres, whilst they tuned up their ‘Beach Beats’: a British dream pop, escapist and often romantic, mixed with hazy post-punk guitars and the soon-to-be-distinctive voice of lead singer Guy Bangham.
