"Echolines, have just released a spectacular 11-track album and it's, quite frankly, blown me away." Thomas Anderson, NE Volume Dec 2017-Jan 2018 Edition

HISPRIZE - Released on 6NOT4 Records 3rd NOVEMBER 2017:

RATHERHAVEU - Released on 6NOT4 Records, 1st AUGUST 2017:

Debut EP, CostaSilencio (available now on all digital media channels):

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

Catchy hooks, powerful riffs, well-crafted songs and lyrics to die for, Echolines are an original rock band from Newcastle UponTyne with hints of classic 80’s/90s indie. Influenced by the pop sensibilities of The Cure and Echo & The Bunnymen while delivering the harder edge of acts like Sugar & Ride, Echolines have carved out their own unique sound which is both instantly familiar but difficult to pigeonhole.

Fusing expansive and melodic guitar with intricate beats, powerful bass, and visceral lyrics, Echolines are creating something which soaks into the subconscious and will have you singing their songs days after you heard them.

"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
"...an 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
