hmv's Next Big Thing... #186 County Line Runner
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you reborn country types County Line Runner...
Who Are They?
County Line Runner is former Lyrebirds man Adam Day and long-term collaborator Sam Baldwin. The Lyrebirds burned brightly for a while at the end of the last decade with their fiery brand of post-punk indie, before dissolving in 2010.
Day now relaunches himself as County Line Runner with Baldwin and the pair have unveiled debut single 'Hard To Find', a track produced by former Coral man Bill Ryder-Jones.
What Do They Sound Like?
This is freewheeling Americana, think 80s Dylan, classic Neil Young, mixed with the dreamy sounds of The La's and the grit of The Black Keys.
Why Should I Be Excited?
County Line Runner bring gorgeous melodies, mournful lyrics and soundscapes as wide as a Virginia valley.
