This Ship formed back in 2011 and may be a band best described as perhaps art rock. The Halifax based group have been commanding everyone’s attention as of late and their buzz has been steadily increasing. This Ship’s music has something for everyone whether it’s clean riffs, lavish tambourine, hand clapping, or keytar. On June 22, 2013 they released their 5 track EP All The stars And Elements (that actually runs as a full length) and set sail on a 17 date tour supporting the album. While still on tour in Quebec City they stopped and did what all bands to right after they release an album, they recorded another EP at Pantoum/Le Phoque.
This Ship is one ambitious band because they are releasing their new EP What’s Left To Burn on November 12, 2013! Having had the pleasure of listening to this EP a few times already I can assure you it’s going to knock your socks off. While all taking turns on vocals and super catchy hooks throughout the EP it leaves you wanting more after the final track Shelter has ended. Don’t believe me? You can listen to Shelter here: http://thisship.bandcamp.com/album/whats-left-to-burn Or better yet, check them out while they’re on the road this November:
