Imagine wearing a scratchy hand knitted sweater and playing flat out rock n roll music in a stuffy, dilapidated English country cottage … well that’s what it’s like to be a Silver Line. Formed by two brothers who were uninspired by the current landscape of guitar music, decided they were going to make music that turns them on. Since meeting Kindo (drums) and Joe Cartwright (bass) in 2019, they have consistently sold out their hometown gigs, have had plays on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6 Music, Radio X and have played festivals from England to America. Fast forward to 2023 and repulsed by the notion of being just another ‘all white male indie’ that sings of teenage love or rants empty pseudo prophetic quotes, The Silver Lines set out to release new music that defies the genre and the peers within it. The product is a very self aware form of songwriting that covers many taboo topics from toxic masculinity, learnt behaviours from past generations, and explores personal experiences that connect with the listener on a much deeper level. Their new single, Blow Dry, is out now.
