Linerunners Short Info

With masses of percussion, a loudhailer and a driving bass, Hereford's Linerunners perform original material with a highly distinctive sound and style. Influences include Nick Cave, Joy Division, Leonard Cohen, Alabama 3 and P J Harvey. One reviewer described them as "A hybrid of 60,s west coast legends Jefferson Airplane and 80,s Liverpool moptops Echo & The Bunnymen" .
"Linerunners are all about light and shade.
Their light comes from Lotty Millward-Brookes and its shade (and sometimes darkness) is supplied in abundance by co-frontman Toby Armitage.
The band’s frontline works like a high contrast photo – with Lotty’s highlights cranked up to the max but Toby’s shadows delivered as dark as possible.
Lotty has a smooth and sweet voice, while Toby has a dark Doomsday growl that suggests something menacing is stirring.
Together their combination brings both apocalyptic melodrama with the promise of sunshine and longer days sometime in the future."
