No Lion - John Paul Roney in the Boom Forest
The vocalist of the now-defunct alternative rock band We The Living, John Paul Roney, has an excellent EP out (which is available on Bandcamp), or at least, it’s been out since April this year.
No Lion is easily my favourite track on the EP, not because the others are weak, but the sheer superiority of which this is presented to the listener makes it my undoubted choice. Bell Jar is intriguing, and Wooden Heart is sweet and honest, Medieval Life is a superbly produced introduction with the haunting croons, but No Lion is a beautifully mixed acapella track. It is grand, unveiling the rich tone that Roney’s vocals possess, and at the same time, shows off his range.
