SilverLiners are a Turkish Alt-Rock act, who mix influences from The Beatles, Radiohead, and The Cure. There is an upbeat song structure that would associate with any band who cite John, Paul, George, and Ringo as inspiration, but there is also a touch of Robert Smith and Co. in there too. ‘Just Ride’ is their Ticket to Ride, but with more of psych sound from the 90s.
