We are a three piece band from Pembrokeshire, West Wales, playing our own, unique sound from all original material. Our emphasis is to create upbeat, energetic music with influences from punk, rock, psychedelic and just about anything else that grabs us! We play for the love and enjoyment of music and aim to portray that in our songs and performances. Sometimes fast and fierce, sometimes slow and serene, but always refreshing! Strong beats and growling bass punctuated with searing guitar and a vocal performance to match! Broken Lines deliver an experience that is intense, exciting and emotionally charged... search for us #brokenlinesuk
"Love your music. Kraut rock? Well Moby Grape had the obverse, The Clash had the inverse and so everything was hunky dory. You stay in your lane, that's cool."
"These boys are smokin'..... We had a Saturday night with the amazing Broken Lines in The Cellar, Cardigan. I've watched the band develop over the last couple of years, and I love what they have become. We appreciate great quality original music here.... especially if it rocks; and that is what we got: thick punky riffs and strong emphatic down strokes, driving drums melded and weaving with heavy bass..... I'm not sure what their influences are, but I can hear a flavour of the early 80's New Wave scene, with perhaps a later Indy Rock influence too: some fast paced chord progressions and a slightly less urgent lyrical delivery. It is difficult to get that singing at one pace and doubling up with a fast downward stroke on the strings method, but David nails it. There were elements of the heavier side of sixties Psychedelia too (enter: the drummer), and perhaps I picked up a little sense of The Doors and The Kinks in there.... maybe a bit of early Zep... nice to see a bass man, with a bit of animation, filling in the gaps with boom: powerful interplay between these two.... anyways: we danced and they delivered.... awesome originals from this fabulous power trio: if you get a chance, go and see them.... bangin'..... Steve, The Cellar, Cardigan."
"Absolutely brilliant band!!xxx"
"A breathe of fresh air! Awesome!"
"When I listened to 'Black Space', I was immediately reminded of The Doors. Both the atmosphere of the song and the sound made me think of them. I enjoy the psychedelic, spacey vibe. 'Sweet Lips' had some pretty cool bass work. It was heavier and more a 'rockier' feel. Both songs are different, but your voice works great with either style. "
"What a great song!
All sorts of things going on there, it reminded me of classic German Krautrock courtesy of Neu!, a bit of New Order filtering the Velvet Underground and most of all, the crazed, New York, avant-garde, rockabilly of the late Alan Vega (aka Suicide)
That's what's good about it, music has a wonderful emotional impact on you, each of us feels it differently, but we all feel something."
"I'm really enjoying their music... it defies categorisation!" "
"I saw them there too...loved their set. Great gigs guys! Blown away!"
"You guys have a new wave side to your multi faceted sound."
"Sort of a bit Slits and PIL and then a touch of Gang of Four...sounds good. "
"Massive thanks to the broken lines band , ourselves and all the customers had a fabulous night last Saturday , truly talented lads who rocked the house down . From all at the golden lion hotel, see you again soon."
"Incredible sounds, unlike any band you have heard!"
"Huge thanks to Broken Lines for their set at the Parrot. Delivering their unique cocktail of punk-psychedelia: punkedelia ... or psych-punk ... whatever catches on. They pin you down with driving bass lines and rip the top of your head off with wailing vocal lines. ... and it's difficult to not lose your mind when they break down into their full on psychadelic mode. Can't wait for them to come back!"
"Saw broken lines at the Golden Lion Newport- excellent gig, good atmosphere 10/10 would recommend"
"What a band. They are so cool and original. When you hear them you know that they are working together at the very fine level. There is a mutual love of music and you feel it when the band are playing. I shall be there on the night at the Plas Hyfred."
"Sounds really exciting and fresh, not heard anything like it for a long time."
"Well done, musically ambitious, sounds like they're having a lot of fun."
