FEE LION is the new-wave-pop output of solo musicatrix Justina Kairyte. Fusing together soft, haunting melodies with gritty dance rhythms, FEE LION creates a powerfully minimal sonic haze for her entrancing, evocative vocal hooks to soar above. Think Fiona Apple spending the night at Johnny Jewel’s house, says Bullett Magazine. Kairyte’s wholesome attention to detail manifests in her live shows which are filled with fog, glossy latex, sweaty dancers and a dark, visual concept that wraps the room in an undulating hypnotic blanket. A sensitive musician, “Kairyte weaves together delicate webs of guitar distortion, a skeletal postpunk guitar pattern, minimal drum loops, a downcast key melody, and a faint hum that sounds like vocal samples slowed to a near halt.” -Chicago Reader
