MP3 At 3PM: Mountain Lions

Steven Diaz shifted over from being a member of long-running Cleveland indie-rock band the Lighthouse And The Whaler to focusing his own music and projects. Out of this self-reinvention came a new indie-pop ensemble: Diaz’s North Carolina-based Mountain Lions, who create music with emotion and personal connection. Debut album We Are is due out August 10, but you can stream and/or download “California,” the LP’s first single, right here, right now. Hear Diaz roar.
