Lemon Sky

Cincinnati, OH

At the nexus of Prog and Pop and the most classic of Classic Rock, Lemon Sky exists as ephemeral idea and solid structure … paisley hallucination and tangible reality … crystalline melodicism and monolithic riffage. In a single song, the Cincinnati-based quintet can encapsulate the pummeling bravado of Led Zeppelin, the passionate innocence of The Beatles, the intricate head-trip of Pink Floyd and the contemporary heart-punch of Queens of the Stone Age and The Flaming Lips. The exciting thing about Lemon Sky is that its wide-eyed, self-titled first album and emphatically brilliant sophomore release “Dos” – as good as they both happen to be – are mere hints at the band’s musical potential. A more recent triumph is the group’s unexpected cover of The Beatles’ “I Want You (She’s So Heavy),” one of the more potent entries in the Fab Four’s catalog, which Lemon Sky transforms into a soaring, searing sonic marathon of orchestrated guitars and a Viking rhythm section. “Valhalla my ass, Lemon Sky is Rock heaven on earth.” - Brian Baker, CityBeat Magazine
