Bio

On the surface, Wolverhampton in the West Midlands seems like any other post industrial town.
With the shadow of neighbouring Birmingham looming large, it takes a special band to rise above the nothingness and shine through the haze. The Lines are that band.
‘Domino Effect’, the debut single from the four-piece on Weekender records, combines the soaring heartfelt vocals of lead singer Alex Ohms with Dean Bate’s punch-the-air guitar melodies.
The driving rhythm section of Chris Titley on bass and Dave O'Connor on drums provides a rigid backbone to their well-crafted songs.
Incredible focus and infectious self-belief elevate their music to a different level - the Lines are here to put Wolverhampton firmly on the musical map. “We’ll burn this town down like nobody else can” sings Alex on their debut. It’s hard to disagree.
These qualities, along with sell out gigs showcasing a powerful set of similarly interstellar tunes, forced music promoters up and down the country to sit up and take notice.
Invitations to support fellow Midlanders the Twang and Editors came rolling in thick and fast. These were then followed by unforgettable gigs with Jack Penate, the Holloways, Little Man Tate, the Maccabees, Babyshambles, Supergrass and The Charlatans.
The boys are now booked to play at Austrias biggest Outdoor Music festival, Frequency and were the first band ever invited to play ‘Blast Off’, Wolverhamptons longest running and most successful indie club night. Domino Effect reached the Indie chart top 10, filling the airwaves on XFM’s Evening Playlist (Manchester / Wales / Scotland), Xposure London and Steve Lamacq’s Top 5.
With radio stations and artists beating a path to their door, it won’t be long before the Lines are massive.
Influences range from the Verve through to Radiohead and the Rapture, but the music these boys make is truly their own. Catch one of their explosive live shows soon and make it yours too.
