Ace Of Wands' gothic folk rocker "Lioness" cloaked in Americana mysticism

Lioness by Toronto's Ace of Wands is a big jagged gothic folk rocker. It feels cloaked in a kind of psychedelic deep woods Americana mysticism. At the center of this 3 piece outfit is singer-songwriter Lee Rose accompanied by Anna Mernieks and Jody Brumell. The big downbeats, jangly rock guitars and strident vox imbued with an almost desperate passion effects in an almost rock gospel sort of way.  Lioness is the title track off of the bands debut Album.

The official video directed by Samuel Scott from a concept conceived by Lee Rose and Scott feels like a story cast in shadows with religious dark undertones shot in a 70's gothic horror style.
