I heard about this band last year, people kept telling me to check them out but I somehow missed them each time I was in Beijing. Therefore I was quite excited to see that they were the band to support the Leeds band Eagulls on their China tour in Beijing. Now I get what the buzz is all about! It's not everyday when you see a band that they blow you away but Lonely Leary did just that. Refreshing but dark with a surprisingly mature sound, although the band hasn't released an album yet, they got recently signed to Maybe Mars Records in Beijing. Their demo tape sounds promising and their live performance shows that they are a band much can be expected from and ready to move out of the small Beijing clubs and venues to the big festival stages. Expect to hear more from this up and coming band in the next year. For now tune in to their bandcamp: https://lonelyleary.bandcamp.com/track/arsonist or check their live performance in the video below.
