Can Gypsy Scouse Surf be a thing? It can, and The Shipbuilders are it.
By mining the innocent, blue-eyed melodies of The Everly Brothers and ghosts of Mersey-past, enveloping them in the fuzz and chaos of Galaxie 500 and adding a final coating of the essence of laments of the sea and the desert, The Shipbuilders have created an aural universe that begs to be explored. Songs of drinking, death and burning the barns exist alongside wide-eyed serenades, all sending smoke rings to the spirits of Joyce, Lorca and Cohen.
On the back of 2017’s ‘Something in the Water EP’, The Shipbuilders release their new double A-Side ‘Fault Line/Wild Atlantic Way’ via Mai 68 Records in 2018 and continue to establish their reputation as a must-see live act with their quarterly ‘Shipwrecked’ nights.
Up the ‘builders.
