Here’s a favourite from Ships live show (Simon Cullen, Sorcha McGrath with Cian Murphy). ‘Places’ is an emotive song, a real stunning curtain raiser/closer. It’s a diptych attached by a building synth tension which erupts into a big cascading synth line along the lines of ‘The Private Psychedelic Reel’. Another reason why Ships are one of my favourite Irish bands of the year.
You can catch them live on NYE at Nightflight’s Grand Social bash alongside New Jackson, I Am The Cosmos, White Collar Boy and Handsome Paddy. Poster and their previous tracks below.
