The Line of Best Fit is the UK's biggest independent website devoted to new music. 

From bedroom blog beginnings ten years ago, we're one of the world’s most trusted voices for music discovery, read by more two million people a month who come to the site to find their new favourite band. 

We’re made by music fans for music fans - a DIY collective of photographers, writers, editors, filmmakers, developers and artists from London, across the UK and beyond. Our independence has given us the freedom to focus on rising talent as much as established artists. 

We’re also a record label, a podcast, a music festival, a club night and a YouTube series. We run stages at some of the world’s best music festivals - Iceland Airwaves, End of the Road, The Great Escape.

You can follow our Discovery playlist on Spotify - updated every weekend - to find out what we’re listening to right now. 

Oh and we we got our name from a song on Death Cab for Cutie's You Can Play These Songs with Chords.
