Desert Ships

Desert Ships from London in England is the dream-wave trio of Mikey (Vocals / Guitar), Daniel (Bass / Vocals), and Claude ( Drums / Vocals).

Like the shroud of a sunlit misty breaking dawn dew, the sounds of Desert Ships invoke of out-of focus shadows as the reverb and echo athwart the music whilst the psychedelic shoegaze oozes of atrabilious reflections giving the out-put an eerily haunting texture. The trio are able to make eight minute tracks a mesmeric dreamscape and even in shorter pieces running around the four minutes mark they allow themselves plenty of space in the calmly paced compositions to allow the mind to thread through entrancing imagery.

Desert Ships is not to be taken on a strenuous work-out in the gym, rather to be savoured in languorous mood where the sounds will let the mind drift in and out of flights of fancy.

Formed a couple of years ago Desert Ships have been able to carve themselves a space of difference and are unafraid and more importantly  have the innate ability to extend their tracks to tell their story, rather than cutting to meet the demand or brevity, without loosing the connection with the listener.

Those who know the trio already will find the five track EP – Skyliner, comes out on the 10th November a more atmospheric and intense sound than previous material. The release, which runs to twenty six minutes, is sufficiently engaging to hit replay immediately to further wallow in the loops and bends of the release.

As per usual, I have managed to select a track from the release and a demo version at that – the closer – Ausgang, which isn’t quite like the rest, as this is completely without vocal and you will have noticed that there are three voices listed in the introduction and these do, in the normal course of events, blend into intoxicating harmonies
