The Silver Lines are a punk/indie band from Birmingham, West Midlands.

Their singles have been championed by BBC Introducing and have had airplay on BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, and Radio X.
Alive is a summer anthem written for the people. The key message of the song is that anyone can change the world regardless of situation or circumstance but is also a comment on how regulated we are as a society. It is deliberately loose to give the song a live effortless feel. The whole piece is seamless, that naturally flows from one part to the next without clunky changes. Overall alive is all about attitude and making your own rules.
