Editors’ Notes

Eschewing any grooming as England’s next big thing, Manchester’s Lowline follows Stone Roses’ early ethos, preferring to play in deserted warehouses instead of trendy venues. The quartet creates a shadowy, guitar-heavy sound that blurs the lines between rock and pop while musing on Manchester's darker aspects, like the city’s burgeoning violence and growing unemployment. The opening song, “Disko Killers,” levels distorted vintage guitar tones with a propulsive rhythm. Over an uncanny chemistry that recalls Echo & The Bunnymen, singer/guitarist Robbie Rush croons in cool deadpan inflections sounding somewhat similar to BRMC’s Peter Hayes. The bass-heavy “Monitors” rocks on a Rickenbacker-sounding jangle pumped through a cocktail of haunting reverb and spacy delay, as Rush sings with a restraint that gradually builds into a palpable tension. Hints of the mysterious middle ground between Joy Division and New Order simmer throughout “All Your Scars,” but these influences serve as old maps pointing at new destinations rather than a nostalgic crutch. “Outside” is a standout single that slaps new life into Madchester’s baggy past.

Customer Reviews

Redefining Manchester's music

Possibly the best debut album I've ever heard. Every song on the album rings with unbridled energy. Lowline's is a darkly brilliant sound, full of textured guitar seamlessly integrating into each next track. (Listen to it in order, you'll be amazed) "Outside", the single released for free on iTunes, has gotten the most popularity, but the other tracks are all also top notch. "Here I Lie", with its brooding bassline, hints at Joy Division's angst without straying from a different sonic atmosphere. "Gun In My Side," with its energetically driven guitar, is just as heady as "Outside". There are hints of influences...a bit of Oasis (can't fault that, having been produced by a member of them), a bit of Bunnymen, but Lowline are already looking more promising from the start with such a stunning debut. Who knows what heights they'll rise to.

Awesome

I really like this band, Outside and All Your Scars have nice catchy beats.

Really great!
