Alt-indie rock from north east England

Check out our debut EP, CostaSilencio:

Charlie Richardson - sings
Richard Sanderson - 6 strings
Jon Haines - 4 strings & electronic gizmos
Michael Jordan Lee - drums

When you get the feeling everyone is in it together... everyone is pulling in the same direction... there’s a real buzz, a genuine feeling that there is something special happening... We're there!

Original music that hits hard… melodies and lyrics which dig a quick route to your inner ear, triggering memories, emotions, new thoughts, hopes and dreams, and staying with you when all goes quiet.

Jon, Rich and Charlie gained critical acclaim and international airplay as The30YearMen, but the addition of Michael Jordan Lee has taken our collective energy to the next level. Michael's style, passion, energy and power, alongside Jon’s solid bass gives us a great dynamic rhythm section complementing Rich’s atmospheric and creative guitar work and Charlie’s distinctive vocals and lyrics. You’ll definitely leave an Echolines' gig singing a new song.

"CostaSilencio ...emotive vocals alongside a lingering feeling of melancholy... / ...second track ‘Make You Mine’ presents an abundance of attitude that is paired with the most energetic and addictive of melodies." Caitlin Thompson, NE Volume - February 2017
" awesome alternative rock explosion full of energy & fun riffs. The songs were very catchy and I would like to see more from them. Overall a good night of live music and it showed that even the smallest crowd can have the most fun." DigThatGroove1 - January 2017
"New Horizon and Red Lights were belting songs and I defy anyone to listen to RatherHaveU and not still be singing the backing harmonies in the taxi home five hours later." Steve Blank, PointBlankTeesside - February 2017

Our music is original, exciting and affecting... That's easy to say. Who do we sound like? That's a bit more difficult. As you would expect from 4 lads who have been fully immersed in 80’s, 90’s and millennial indie rock and pop, there are influences that you may be able to recognise. Best thing is to catch us live, open up your ears and make up your own minds.
