Forget duos, four-pieces, in fact any of that single figure nonsense, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros are a twelve strong super group. And in new track ‘In The Lion’ that big sound utilises every one of them. I’m beginning to think (hope) that the multi-layered choral track was going to become a ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’ mash up around half way through. It’s close, and I think it’s definitely channeled, but it’s definitely an ES&TMZ number. The band’s first two albums, as well as their unforgettable live performances, have awarded them a loyal fan base, and their latest album has already reached number 5 across the pond with it’s US release last month.
