Battle Lines Short Info

Formed in Leeds in 2012, Battle Lines are a band that brood, swell and explode. Their releases to date strain with lust and longing, conveying a sense of otherness throughout. Unwilling to be pinned down to any specific genre, amongst many they variously channel the lineage of Kate Bush, Sonic Youth and Portishead.

Battle Lines' latest offering is a bold and visceral two-song record that runs the gamut of emotions with cathartic soundscapes in just under ten minutes. From the haunting title track, “Colonies,” which is fraught with inner-conflict as singer Carly Humphries disarms listeners with her vulnerable lyrics, to the newly released “Push,” an intense song that builds and bursts with angst and submission; the new release puts Battle Lines on the map as one of indie rock’s more eclectic crop of artists the UK has to offer — giving fans and critics a peek at what’s to come on their eventual full-length record.

The band have performed at SXSW (Austin, Texas), Reading & Leeds Festivals and Beacons Festival. They have featured on BBC Radio One, BBC 6 Music, KROQ and NME.Com.
