“The Distance Is So Big” continues in the band’s tradition of songs that unfold like mini-suites, hopscotching from one melodic figure or time signature to the next with a playwright’s sense of structure.” - NPR
Without a distinguishable understanding of the pop and intensity, a silent video of a Lemuria show would appear to be that of a blistering hardcore trio. To the viewers surprise, turning the audio on they’d find an intricate indie-pop trio.
Lemuria might not sound like they are from Buffalo, NY, but the band was proudly birthed there, following the legacy of an oddly eclectic, if not eccentric, music scene. When you loosen your ears to the sugary indie-pop, you’ll discover discordant notes, odd time signatures, and brutal riffs creating menacing yet catchy music. After putting out records on many celebrated labels like Bridge 9, Asian Man, No Idea and Suburban Home, they recently released a comic book 7” collaboration with Mitch Clem and Silver Sprocket documenting their tour of Russia.
