Powerline Sneakers are a four-piece firebrand band from Melbourne Australia featuring Sly Faulkner (Splatterheads), John Nolan (Powder Monkeys), Mark Hurst (Yes Men), and Katie Dixon (Ripe).

Powerline Sneakers are impossible to pigeonhole. Vocalist Sly Faulkner says it best: "It's kinda 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 backbeat that can break necks."

Powerline Sneakers know how to fall in love, and how to live with a broken heart. They weave it through their songs, sometimes with the simplest hope ("...I hold your hand and I am indestructible..."), but then the letdown ("...i buy you a wedding ring but please don't pawn it."). Paired with harmonised melodies that would be no stranger in 60s Motown, Powerline Sneakers are not just a standup rock'n'roll band but seasoned players of their own perfect pop.

 

Powerline Sneakers have all bases covered - a punchy pop narrative of the weirdness of life and love. Love can be a dream when life can be a nightmare, but Powerline Sneakers might just save the day.

It's rock'n'roll the way it was invented - with passion, volume, and a lust for life.
