• ‘an absolute smorgasbord of musical delights’

    Under The Radar Magazine

    Post-punks LIINES are Zoe McVeigh (vocals, guitar) and Leila O’Sullivan (drums). Formed in 2014, they’ve built a reputation as one of the most exciting acts to emerge from Manchester in recent years. Their sound is an infectious, urgent and at times furious blend of post-punk, Riot Grrrl and alt-rock sounds which take in elements of their collective influences. There’s the dark angular undertones and brooding introspection of Joy Division, the high energy of The Pixies and the emotive, impassioned sound of Sleater-Kinney wrapped in catchy fast-paced riff-laden songs. Since 2019, they’ve toured with Sleaford Mods and The Wedding Present and supported Ladytron, Ash and Desperate Journalist. They’ve been handpicked by Tim Burgess for festivals and were Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition finalists. They’ve been championed by the likes of 6 Music’s Tom Robinson and Chris Hawkins as well as Radio X’s John Kennedy.
