New Artist of the Week | Ships Have Sailed
Our New Artist of the Week is Ships Have Sailed! I came across the indie-pop duo at LA’s Hotel Café, and was blown away by their live set. Guitarst and vocalist Will, and drummer Art, have a unique ability to create a pop vibe on stage just with the two of them.
Their older repertoire consists of a classic pop band sound, but their newer sound in their 2017 song, just surpassing 100K plays, ‘Up’ incorporates the new electronic vibe that’s trending right now, and shows us a darker, more mysteriously ambient vibe, resonating influences of old school rock bands.
‘Boomerang’ was their most memorable song for me, off their 2015 album, with an innovative sound that is less expected from a pop artist, proving their creativity as artists. Will’s vocals definitely lay on the laid back, chilled out side, yet he never compromises on the excitement and energy in his music, his connection to the lyrics consistently evident.
