Since forming in 1994, bis have continually mutated their initial influences of Synth-pop, Riot Grrrl and DIY Punk into weird and wonderful songs with a natural gift for melodic earworms with a disco heartbeat. Sci-Fi Steven, John Disco and Manda Rin first caught the UK underground’s attention with the “Disco Nation 45” EP in 1995.
With new songs now in the live set and becoming fans favourites, the infamous punk/disco heartbeat returns as fresh as ever. And now the wait is over and the new album “Slight Disconnects” was released February 2019. Reviews have been overwhelmingly positive for a sound that is both thrillingly fresh and unmistakeably Bis.
LIINES are Zoe McVeigh (vocals/guitar), Tamsin Middleton (bass) and Leila O’Sullivan (drums). The Manchester-based trio are a prominent band in the post-punk / new-wave scene, with comparisons ranging from Savages to PINS to Desperate Journalist.
Their sound is an infectious, urgent and at times furious blend of Riot Grrrl, post-punk and alt-rock sounds which take in elements of their collective influences.Support from Bugeye
