Packed with surges of undeniable energy in its grungy riffs… they channel a wild confidence that doesn’t back down” NME
“’Suck’ – all Nineties soft-quiet dynamics with a killer melodic twist and a hook begging to be shouted at summer festivals: ‘I’m strung out, I’m strung out, I’m strung out!’” Rolling Stone Australia
“We’re all about the raw honesty and keeping the guitars loud” Tired Lion

Fronted by the brilliantly named Sophie Hopes, Tired Lion are a visceral life force. Delivering it straight up with a storming confidence, over boisterous guitars. The band are fast following the well-trodden footsteps of peers such as Courtney Barnett, out of Australia and into the big wide world. Loud and lairy – it’s no wonder the lion is so tired! Acting as the perfect ying to her yang, Sophie is joined by Matt Tanner, Ethan Darnell and Nick Vasey. They take no prisoners.

Back home in Australia with killer singles ‘Suck’ and ‘I Don’t Think You Like Me’, Tired Lion wontriple j’s influential Unearthed Award, and owned the main stage at Splendour In The Grass, claiming the WAMI for Best Rock Song, as well as supporting The 1975 on their Australian tour.
