Still working on that hot first release.



Tall Ships had an amazing 2011. In October they had an incredible week in New York, performing at the CMJ Music Marathon showcasing their mesmerising live set to a host of excitable new fans. It wrapped up a busy festival season which saw them pack out tents and wow crowds at Bestival, Hop Farm, 2000 Trees, The Great Escape (one of NME’s Top 20 Bands You Must See), Live At Leeds, Tramlines and numerous others, and also managed to squeeze in a week of playing shows in Brazil. They also released their first 7" single ‘Hit The Floor’ which instantly sold out. The band closed 2011 with a sold out headline show at the Lexington in November.

Tall Ships have just released ‘T=0’, the first single from their debut album. Recorded with producer Jamie Field (Tubelord, Tangled Hair) in Bovey Tracey, Devon and mastered by Jeff Lipton at Peerless (Battles, LCD Soundsystem, Bon Iver), set for release later this year. The 7” comes in beautiful handcrafted marbled ink sleeves designed by the band’s visual artist Harriet Bridgewater and is backed up by b-sides which include a 65daysofstatic remix of the track and tracks from live sessions in New York.

Tall Ships, originally from Falmouth but now living in Brighton, have been garnering attention across the blogosphere, printed press and radio with their complex, layered and beautiful soundscapes and intelligent songwriting to create music that still manages to have the potential for mass appeal.

Elements of math rock and angular pop have drawn inevitable comparisons to the likes of Battles and Minus The Bear but the band cite the likes of Sigur Rós, Prince and Explosions In The Sky as their musical influences.

Live Tall Ships are a must see band, mesmerising to watch, with such energy and deftness you can’t help but be amazed by them. They are fast gaining a well-deserved reputation as one of the most innovative and exciting live bands in the UK right now. They tour relentlessly and have honed the show into a thrilling experience, both aurally and visually as layers of sound and vocals are cleverly and deftly assembled to startling effect. They have already supported the likes of We Are Scientists, Metronomy (in Brazil), 65 Days Of Static (throughout Europe), Maps & Atlases, The Futureheads, Minus The Bear, Three Trapped Tigers & Tubelord.
