Heart Ships, a six-piece based in Leeds and hailed by their fan base as the new Wild Beasts according to NME who are pretty keen on them too. They’re doing alright, at least they have been over the last couple of years, BBC introducing, followed by a spot at last year’s Reading and Leeds festival, seems like this band could be on to something.
Why not have a little listen to their song Heart Of A Wrestler (A Young Man’s Struggle for Strength) courtesy of Bandcamp while you’re here. Released in 2010 but still quite a treat:
I really quite like this song, there’s something in the way it changes, it’s a good little (well a 6 minuter…) escapism song. Enjoy. After that maybe have a look at their Facebook page, there’s a couple of other songs on their bandpage that aren’t embeddable from Bandcamp.
