Pedro the Lion Shake Up the NPR Tiny Desk Set: Watch


Indie rock trio Pedro the Lion rocked the “stage” with a three-song set for the most recent NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert, uploaded on Thursday (Nov. eight). 

Frontman David Bazan rocked the bass, with Erik Walters on electrical guitar and Sean Lane on drums. The band opened with their cheeky tune about becoming in, “When They Really Get to Know You They Will Run,” off their debut ’98 album. “Put on no matter makes you engaging,” Bazan sang, pondering double-standards for ladies, “If it's not you then do it for the sake of style/ Your mates like a sure you/ That's who you've bought to be.”

The band contrasted the traditional tune with a brand new one off their forthcoming album, which might be their first in fourteen years. Although "Yellow Bike" tells the story of a five-year-old boy receiving a motorcycle on Christmas, on a deeper degree, it's a commentary on Bazan’s makes an attempt to deal with loneliness.

The group completed with a rendition of the cryptic “Kept Secrets,” which was initially launched on the 2016 album Blanco below Bazan’s self-titled act.
