A GROUP of Renfrewshire rockers with dreams of one day making it big are taking their first steps in the music world.

Harry Gallacher, Michael Macgee, Matthew Kennedy and Marc Sermanni, who all attend Gryffe High School in Houston, have formed an indie rock band called The Lines and have set about gigging around Renfrewshire and beyond in the hope of one day making it onto major stages, such as the TRNSMT festival in Glasgow.

The group, formed at the end of 2017, recently released their first EP called Don’t Fret on iTunes and Spotify and have been lining up gigs at venues such as Calum’s Cavern and The Cave in Paisley, as well as Ivory Black’s in Glasgow.

From the days of trying out tunes and practicing in school together, drummer Michael, 16, said he thinks the band have come a long way in a short space of time and have a lot further to go yet.

Michael, who is from Houston, said: “It was all started by our two guitarists really, Harry and Marc. 

“They were just messing about really and Harry had a few ideas.

“They decided they wanted to form a band.

“They had heard I played drums and asked me to join before asking our bassist Matthew to join.

“It turned out a couple of us had some good ideas and we went into school where there was all the equipment and just started to work on some material.

“We got our first gig at the Gryffe Inn in Houston and then it’s just grown from there. 

“We are now gigging a lot more often and we’ve got lots of stuff lined up for this year. 

“We are taking it pretty seriously and have dedicated lots of time to it.

“We hope that one day we can be on the TRNSMT stage. I think that would be my absolute dream.”

The Lines now have plans to shoot a music video for the title track of their EP in the next couple of months and are hoping to release a couple more singles later this year.
