Single Review: The Flatline – Isn’t she Pretty?

I like a band with presence and plenty of swagger and young Manchester/ Oldham/ Huddersfield band The Flatline have it in spades. After last year’s excellent Arctic Monkey rock tinted Sub Pressure Sessions EP, the guys (lead singer Jack Dunning, Will Leslie on guitar, Jamie Walton with bass and drummer Ben Pursehouse) end 2018 with a new track Isn’t She Pretty. Isn’t She Pretty is … Continue reading Single Review: The Flatline – Isn’t she Pretty?
