SILENT LIONS: Dean Tartaglia & Matt Klein

Conceived in Toledo, OH with a home base in sister city Detroit, Silent Lions are the sinister twosome of heavy-soul. Dean Tartaglia simultaneously plays effected octave bass, sampled synths, and manipulated atmospheric vocals, all while drummer Matt Klein grooves and thrashes beside him, often providing soulful singalong melodies and harmonies. The duo’s live shows sound as thick and creamy as they do on record. Their music has been tagged as “spooky soul,” “chill punk” and “Hall and Oates stoner rock.”

Silent Lions’ upcoming sophomore six-song EP, The Compartments, is a deeper exploration into genre manipulation. From hip-hop to stoner rock, Silent Lions create moments of lo-fi chaos out of hi-fi clarity. With their unofficial third member Zach Shipps (Electric Six) producing, The Compartments takes enough risks to turn your head, but never strays from SiLi’s visceral, trademark, super sub bass and drum sound.

Dean started making his mark nationally with Detroit local legends The Sights, touring the U.S. and Europe supporting Tenacious D. Silent Lions are proud to continuously share bills with some of the best new artists in the scene (Mr. Gnome, Jamaican Queens, Bad Veins).

Silent Lions’ The Compartments EP will be available January 14, 2014 on vinyl, digital & CD formats through the band’s own label, Nah Collective.
