Lina and the Lions
Garden Stage, Sunday 2022
Hailing from Sheffield and influenced by giants like Blondie, Cyndi Lauper and The Police, Lina and the Lions deliver an energetic sound that rides the crux of the 80s New Wave while bringing in a brand-new tide of ingenuity to the tune of glassy synths and synthesised bass - all serving as the perfect backdrop for Lina's unmistakable soaring vocal.
It's like an homage to the Cyndi Lauper, Madonna era but with a really great unique twist on it.

In the past year, the trio have independently released 6 singles, 4 music videos and a full-length album, Second Nature. Lina and the Lions built a following of dedicated fans around the world while still managing to earn features from the likes of BBC Introducing, Only The Northern One, Wolf in a Suit and many more.
