Formed in 2014 through a love of 70s post-punk, 80s new wave and 90s grunge, fierce Mancunian trio LIINES are no strangers to the local scene but find more praise heaped upon them with each passing performance. Made up Zoe McVeigh on vocals and guitar, Tamsin Middleton on bass and Leila O’Sullivan on drums, the band have recently returned from 32 supporting Sleaford Mods across the country during their Eton Alive tour. They visit YES on Saturday 1st June, and have just released latest single ’On and On’ via independent label Reckless Yes – listen below! Ahead of the show, the band will be live in conversation with BBC Radio 6 Music’s Chris Hawkins at Northern Quarter newbie 33 Oldham Street, free to attend.
Most accurately described by The Quietus as “tight-as-you-like snarly pop coated in a holy racket of guitar noise“, the raucous three-piece saw off the release of debut album ‘Stop-Start’ last summer, finding a devoted following with a string of hotly-received singles and live performances. Don’t miss the latest chance to catch their take on modern alternative rock this June at the Charles Street venue.
LIINES perform at YES on Saturday 1st June 2019. Tickets are available here.
