Bio

Every now and then, a band comes along with the sounds of something fresh and promising. Sydney band Battleships fits right into this category. Battleships' music tips it hat to the differing influences of the band’s individual members, blending indie rock sensibilities with the aesthetics of Post-Britpop, to create a sound entirely their own. They set out to create music that they enjoy playing, something that they themselves would listen to...and hopefully, something that you would listen to too.

It's great ...

It's great to watch Battleships develop into a truly reliable and continually forward thinking local outfit. This tune's another step towards the big things that're on their way for this band.

A great self ass...

A great self assured track that you have self produced really nicely. 'Ghostly' comes to mind.
