It’s two years ago today since we launched the double A LIINES 7″ Disappear / Be Here and with just a handful left in stock this is your last chance to buy.
Released on gorgeous solid white vinyl with iconic artwork the single was the first the band released through Reckless Yes after signing to us earlier in 2016.
Reviews were filled with praise for the Paul Tipler-produced (Placebo, Elastica, Stereolab) tracks which showcases the scale of their sound; a vastness that makes you anticipate each beat, rewarded with huge hooks and driving basslines to make your heart hammer hard.
The single preceded the band’s now sole out debut album – Stop-Start – which was released on matching white vinyl in May this year and is sure to be picked out as a highlight of the musical year for many. LIINES are still only at the beginning of their journey but these releases set the scene for a band destined for great things – big announcements for 2019 coming soon!
What the press said about Disappear / Be Here
“‘Disappear’ races with pummelling beats and raw, gritty vocals. Oozing grunge-inspired vibes, it’s a brooding, impassioned track that’ll leave you hungry for more from this utterly awesome trio.” Gigslutz
“Brilliant – driving and strident, it’s pared down to the bare essentials: an urgent vocal melody, a propulsive rhythm, grinding guitars.” The Quietus
“‘Disappear’ is a fraught slice of punk rock with echoes of Sleater-Kinney, Elastica and Fugazi in the mix. It’s urgent and vital stuff.” The National Student
“The driving bassline and crisp vocals invoking comparisons to the likes of Savages, LIINES are certainly ones to watch.” Louder Than War
“On ‘Disappear’, machine gun snares, pumping high hats blend with screeching jarring guitars in a minimalist post punk symphony, while McVeigh’s voice soars above. The bassline sounds new wave and drives everything forward. “Don’t you wish you’d learn to forget something you know that’s ended”” Collapseboard
“a perfect slice of post-punk pop” God Is In The TV
