TUNE The Shipbuilders - Stranger's Lament
"If I had a match, this place would burn..."
The song is one of the displaced; refugee, traveller, worker, the specifics don't matter - all that remains is a lament for the land left behind and the pretty girls who wait back there.
Drums crash, voices wail, bass throbs and accordions weave in and out of the consciousness in a clattering, chest-thumping cocktail of Eastern European balladry and Western surf-rock chaos.
The single tops off a successful 2018 for The Shipbuilders, following the release of the double A-Side 'Fault Line/Wild Atlantic Way' earlier in the year and the band are already back in the studio, working on 2019's treasures and have Spring dates lined up around the UK (Brighton, Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Chester confirmed, with more to follow).
Released on 30th November 2018.
