The EP they released is called Pep Talk + Quarter-Life Crisis. The first song is Pep Talk and its really nothing but an intro to their single Quarter-Life Crisis. Pep Talk itself is actually a pretty good intro, and I could see the band themselves walking onto the stage to start a set with it or something along those lines. I find myself humming it from time to time myself.
The main event to this EP is Quarter-Life Crisis. This is the same old Judah & The Lion greatness that we expect from Judah & The Lion. The song is about turning to friends to help and finding strength in numbers. Judah & The Lion always come out with some of the most inspiring lyrics and that is on display here with:
“All these stories probably should be just for my therapist
I’ve been fighting, hide and try my best not to let you in
I can’t do this all alone”
Other than it having great lyrics, its all around a great song to listen to. Nothing beats jamming out to some bad ass banjo licks.
This makes me excited as hopefully that Judah & The Lion make their way back to Buffalo again, the last time they had a show here they tore the house down in the Town Ball Room which I was lucky enough to cover as one of my very first concerts as a photographer. Along with that they also had a pretty cool acoustic set the night before Kerfuffle 2018 this year which the picture from above was taken.
Check out this song and others if you aren't familiar with Judah & The Lion!
