Release Date: Out Now
McVeigh, Middleton and O’Sullivan may sound like a group of dodgy solicitors, but these three women are in fact Mancunian post-punkers Liines so don’t go asking them to alter your Granny’s will without her knowing. The trio’s new single ‘Find Something’ starts with a dirty, grumbling guitar line that is nothing if not the throb of a motorbike waiting for a green light – all throttle twists and exhaust fumes. The drums have a low timbre while the vocals wail like the Long Blondes making a comeback with Beth Ditto behind the production controls. Liines have power, style and a sense of purpose on this track which is a powerful triumvirate of qualities to have as a person but as a band, well, you’d better not stand in their way. You’ve been warned.
