The Scandinavian purveyors of industrial synth-pop return with their new single “People”. Already championed by friend and fellow Swede Tove Lo, the infectious track features gang vocals from Adele Kosman over a bed of lush synths and a commanding melody; a future anthem.
The story of LINES began when Erik, Fred and Nisse decamped from their native Sweden on a trip to lose themselves in the hedonism of Berlin’s nightlife. Under the influence of a higher power lines were drawn and blueprints made. ”It still feels like we’re on mission from god to save pop music.” And though the band was born in Berlin, rave capital of Europe, we find their roots in Stockholm’s indie scene.
Keeping the tradition of the Swedish electronic music scene pioneered by bands like The Knife and Teddybears, LINES combines timeless melodies with heavy synths and innovative twists. It’s unadulterated euphoric nihilism expertly distilled into high speed adrenaline pop. With lyrics that deal in excesses and extremes, LINES produce defiant and socially conscious alt pop that deals with themes of isolation, escapism and what the band call “obsessive and destructive love.”
“We’re not Rage Against The Machine in our politics but we try to express some kind of social commentary between the lines”.
