“Fallen Idol” is the vibrant new single released by rock n roll band The Silver Lines, which formed in Manchester in early 2018. The group’s sound is inspired by late 60’s powerhouses, such as The Kinks and The Rolling Stones, and is fairly radiophonic, as the radio success of their previous two releases show.
In particular, the band’s first single “Roamer” was unveiled in late 2018 and championed by Tom Robinson on BBC Radio 6. The second one, “Parliament”, was shared in February 2019 and played by Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1.
The new single “Fallen Idol” is a song inspired by escapism, namely leaving your troubles behind and getting away from the day to day grind. The sound is fairly energetic and throbbing. Bluesy guitar riffs and solos, rock vibes, punk vocals and catchy melody generally characterize the song. The single features an accessible and commercial tune, making it really radiophonic.
On the other hand, The Silver Lines are set to release an exciting new EP at the start of next year. The group is also ready to kick off a new tour, with numerous sold out UK gigs and festivals booked from the UK to the USA. While waiting for new music to come out, listen to “Fallen Idol” below:
