The Silver Lines are a relatively new band on the scene, but their music speaks otherwise. Unlike a lot of contemporary music, there is fire in the belly when it comes to the four-piece group from the UK. New Single Hotel Room is emblematic of this, taking inspiration from 70s rock, garage, maybe a little bit of U2 and even some modern counterparts such as Sam Fender who has taken over the UK indie scene as of late.
Hotel Room is classic sounding indie track that produces a strong narrative, engaging the listener throughout alongside meandering guitar lines taking us back to a simpler time, where storytelling was at the heart of songs. Simplicity (on purpose), seems to be a common theme in the bands music, which is definitely under-appreciated nowadays.
When asked what the song meant to them, they said:
“Hotel Room gently blurs the lines between a raw punk tune and an indie ballad. Lyrically it was a cathartic song to write as it allowed me to understand particular emotions I had buried.”
