Liines - Blackout

Just as Savages cement themselves as the best female fronted band around, Manchester three piece Liines come surging along to threaten their reign.

'Blackout' opens with an assault of drums and a great guitar hook reminiscent of their aforementioned peers. The difference between the two comes with directness of the track. Where as Savages might look for alternative routes to the conclusion, Blackout seem hell bent on getting their as quickly as possible.

The riff is a like an aggressive post-punk version of the many catchy pop hooks of Franz Ferdinand. Couple this with Zoe McVeigh's violent and destructive vocals and alternative dj's have a go to record to liven up indie crowds on Friday nights.
