Powerline Sneakers

Powerline Sneakers

Thursday 28 September 2017

Formed from the undergrounds of Aussie 90s supergroups, Powerline Sneakers have their roots planted in Australian punk and rock’n’roll, with collective histories in The Powder Monkeys, Splatterheads, Ripe, Swedish Magazines, The Yes Men, Bored!, and the Guttersnipes.

Powerline Sneakers are impossible to pigeonhole. Vocalist Sly Faulkner says it best: “It’s kind of like you get taken on a joyride… One minute, you’re sitting low in the seat of a peep show cinema, slashed and sleazy, but then suddenly your heart’s racing and in the back seat of a stolen city cab. You’re lost between trouble and true love, only to end up being red light serenaded on the street where love is all, people are cheap and passion means everything. Vengeful broken hearts throb a back beat that can break necks.”

Powerline Sneakers come in following the recent release of their full length debut album disasterpiece.

Listen back to Fang It! for a live set from Powerline Sneakers. Studio 5 Live is proudly brought to you by Mountain Goat.
