Mountain Lions: “In the Valley”

By: Jack Anderson

Big cats, stand up! After half a decade of solo storytelling and songwriting, North Carolina’s Steven Diaz is ready to re-emerge with his new musical mane, Mountain Lions.

Up til now Diaz has mainly been known as one of the Cleveland indie rockers behind The Lighthouse and the Whaler but 2018 has witnessed Diaz doubling down with his pride of Americana production. Nearly a full year since Mountain Lions’ debut EP, Diaz returns from the cave with a man eater of a record, centering on themes of nature, technology and emotions. The masterfully-crafted ten-song full-length We Are comes out at the tail end of this week when listeners can expect some flourishing indie folk that’s anything but tame. You don’t have to wait all the way until Friday, unleash the beast and enter the den with a track premiering today – “In The Valley”.
