California group PAPA is the brainchild of Girls' drummer Darren Weiss and his friend from childhood, bassist Danny Presant. The first single off PAPA's new EP A Good Woman Is Hard To Find is the bright and twinkling "I Am The Lion King," which Weiss explains was inspired by his time living in New York. "This was written while we were living in New York, and I don't think I could have written it anywhere else," Weiss tells Rolling Stone about the track, which infuses pop hooks with soulful grooves. "Being a young man in that city is like being a stick of dynamic at a gasoline party – it's stinky, strange, explosive and wonderful. It's enough to make anyone feel like the lion king."
