Up-and-coming Manchester post-punks LIINES are poised to release their third, double ‘A’-side single and debut vinyl next week on new label, Reckless Yes.

Continuing the mood of previous singles, ‘Never There’ and ‘Blackout’, the band showcase their dark, increasingly confident sound on this record using repetition, driving Killing Joke-style bass, suitably Joy Divison-esque drumming, and Zoe McVeigh‘s trademark empassioned, keening vocals to hypnotic effect.

Often compared to Sleater-Kinney, LIINES in fact deliver a unique take on a thoroughly British sound that, having built a solid live set over the last couple of years, the band should have no problems transforming into a powerful debut album.

Produced by Paul Tipley – who has worked with Angelica, Mambo Taxi, Elastica, and Stereolab among others – you can preview both tracks, ‘Disappear’ and ‘Be Here’, below:

‘Disappear’/’Be There’ is out via Reckless Yes on October 28. LIINES start a UK mini-tour at Birthdays in Dalston, London, on October 29.
