"Maya Lakhani's The Line is a dark and brooding exercise in alt rock. Drawing a line under anything less than this huge track" -
"‘The Line’ is a cathartic release that rings out like a staple alt-rock anthem. Maya Lakhani has curated a modern rock tune that feels DIY, yet is polished with a contemporary edge. ‘... a taste of something new, served on a nostalgic platter." -

// Releasing: Debut single "The Line" on
Friday 27th November, to all streaming platforms
Maya Lakhani, a British Indian female rock artist is releasing her debut solo single “The Line” on Friday 27th November, to all streaming platforms. “The Line” is a song all about learning to set healthy boundaries and starting again, stronger and more confident than before. It was heavily inspired by 2020, which gave Maya a new perspective on life and pushed her to finally step over "the line" and pursue her solo career. It's a perfect opening statement track for Maya and a 2020 personal anthem.
The production of the song was a lockdown feat, with Maya writing, producing & recording all of the vocals and guitars in her bedroom, never leaving her house to create this record! She has also become the creative director of her brand, doing all her own photography & videography. The track was mixed remotely by Julian Simmons (credits include Ed Sheeran & Anne-Marie) and mastered by Beau Thomas of Ten Eight Seven Mastering (credits include Aphex Twin). Maya has been mentored by Jessica Winter, an incredibly talented & accomplished solo artist.
Maya was born into the rock scene having cemented her love for it since playing in bands from age 12. In her previous bands she played the likes of Rough Trade East curated by Dream Wife, the Isle of Wight Festival New Blood Competition national finals and headlined The Camden Assembly. With all of this valuable experience, she is now ready to debut as a solo artist.
