theelectricmainline The Electric Mainline London The Electric Mainline are a musical collective based in London. The bands sound falls somewhere between shoegaze, punk and psychedelia. This is music for kids with their eyes rolled back in their heads and their heads in the clouds.

This was followed by the self-released 6 track ‘All Too Much’ EP.
