The Lines – No Illusions, No Cheap Tricks EP
aaamusic | On 25, Jun 2012
No Illusions No Cheap Tricks is the new EP by Wolverhampton four-piece The Lines. Its title track and main highlight conquers you in the most immediate way, with its early-Kasabian vibe and grandiose arrangements. Foundations continues this in spectacular fashion, with hooks somewhere between Standing On The Shoulder of Giants-era Oasis and Maximo Park. The inclusion of a remix version of El Matador reveals a possible Chemical Brothers influence which both contrasts and confirms their vision. No Illusions No Cheap Tricks is a promising release, full of the confidence and consistency that marks a truly great band.
