Wicklow Town, County Wicklow
Aphrodite Lion is Anne Graham and Mike Tinsley, a Wicklow / Dublin based duo making bi-curious alt rock sounds. Look at the witty, crude, sinister, curious layers of their music: Anne is a nerd who creates unexpected, sometimes masculine, melodies with lyrics that would turn most docker blush. Mike, awkward at first, has a wit and impropriety shown in rude, innuendo-laden riffs. Monochrome Bisexual Triathlete was the debut monster they created: released on their own Recidivist Records imprint to universal indifference back in September 2011.,
They brushed themselves off and followed the album up with a 4 Track Yuletide EP entitled “A Vicarious Christmas” released in December 2011.
In August 2012 they released a new 5 Track EP inspired by heartbreak and literary fiction which will be entitled "Holden and Jane Holding Hands."
They are also keen bloggers and regularly pour out their musical musings at The Lions Share (aphroditelion.tumblr.com)
