New song 'Lions Fighting In A Church' 

Epic battles and fairytale endings were the inspiration for ‘Lions Fighting In A Church’ the latest single release from Kiwi-Russian singer/songwriter, Marina Bloom. 

Inspired by epic love songs like ‘Bat Out Of Hell’ by Meatloaf, lyricist Michael Davis wanted to write a love song with epic highs and dramatic lows. He points out, there are not many scenes more epic than lions swiping pews and pulpit aside to ferociously attack one another.
