Pigeon Row Media Release

unnamedWeird Lines release their debut, self-titled album on Friday, July 08, 2016. The band embarks on an Eastern Canadian tour in support of the record, which is available via the newly minted Sappy Futures Ltd. label.

It seems apt that Weird Lines infuse lyrics about sunnier days on their debut LP: “You asked for twin summers / It was all you ever wanted / It was all you ever needed” sings C.L. McLaughlin on “Twin Summers.” Coupled with the unmistakable voice of Julie Doiron, the subtle timbres of Jon McKiel, the adventurous saxophone of Chris Meaney, and the jukebox beats of James Anderson, the summer theme permeates the eight-track album, both in style and content.

Whether on the doo-wop progressions of “One Fell Swoop,” the anthemic chime of”Fade In My Heart,” the hazy ocean sway of “Malibu,” or the careening drive of”Summer Can,” these are songs started around fire and muddled swamp water, drawing influences from 50s pop, 90s distortion, and a little magic in Sackville, New Brunswick.
