"…They span such a wide array of adjectives from song to song (as evidenced on this year’s EP Make Shift) that they’re hard to sum up in a few short sentences. The music is earnest, rooted in New America; part haunted songwriter; broken-hearted and hopeful, with an all-encompassing catchy post-indie rock folk vibe."
- Victoria VanBruinisse, writer (ThreeImaginaryGirls.com)
“Brite Lines incorporates niche instruments—musical saw, melodica, banjo—without being a niche band itself. Singer Zach Gore smiles through energetic performances even while singing about that moment before the end of love, when the warmth has died out. Their first EP, Make Shift, is an upbeat ode to the changes we make in ourselves in the wake of heartbreak.”

"They have that down-home cabin vibe… Zach Gore is a lively front man with a wide range of influences as a songwriter. His charm filled the room with positive energy."
-Lauren J Barnhart, writer (TheLeveeBreaking.org)
"Poppy folk-rock, plumped up with strings, that occasionally employs zany instrumentation, but which is most effective when it takes a straightforward approach and lets the songs’ emotional brevity speak for itself."
-Ma’chell Duma Lavassar, writer (Seattle Weekly)
“The rhythms are good. The singing is solid and sure of itself. The lyrics are confessional, often leaning on country touchstones. There is very nice saw… Brite Lines are making solid indie folk right now. But I get the feeling they’ll be a band that develops quickly.”
-Bart Cameron, writer (BallOfWax.org)
"Zach Gore has crafted a distinct voice. His ear for catchy melodies and his careful lyricism mingle with an earnestness that is lacking in much of the trendy music being put out today. BRITE LINES marks a significant moment in Gore’s career… surrounding himself with talented musicians who push his songwriting to new heights and complexity."
