Review: ‘Deadbeat Lullabies’ – Fine Lines

I had the pleasure of seeing Fine Lines perform just recently at the British Country Music Festival in Blackpool and was impressed by the 7-piece band from Cheshire, they were tight-knit with good songs and vocal harmonies.

With this record they prove to me they’re not just a good live band. From the soothing yet delicate sounds of ‘Out on the Shore’ to the driving tempo of ‘The Island’, there is a high level of musicianship on display. ‘First Light’ is a favourite of mine on the record, I love the swirling sounds of the lap steel and the way the song slowly builds up, growing all the time. It’s very well produced.

There is a versatility within their writing and production, with a good balance of ballads and high energy numbers, but there’s also a cohesiveness to their outfit – their vision is clear. It’s a must have album in any Americana fans collection.
