The New Lines, from New York City, have just finished mastering their first full-length record with me after releasing a handful of 7″s. Fronted by Hewson Chen (Vitesse), he is joined by René Dennis and Michael Donofrio. I always feel that this band reminds me of Nico and The Velvet Underground meets Jesus and Mary Chain if they were all from France. It’s a wonderfully lush pop album complete with totally drippingly delayed vocals, vintage organs and garage drums.
The album will be released in the UK on the The Great Pop Supplement imprint later this summer.
