Ships are Simon Cullen and Sorca McGrath.
In late 2011 they landed on the live music scene in Ireland following their posting of a track, Two Hearts, to Soundcloud (http://soundcloud.com/ships-1/two-hearts) which got the attention of local and lauded blogger Nialler9.
They have since gigged throughout 2012 with a selection of diverse supports slots from Jape, Kool Thing, to New York's Wolf and Lamb and Soul Clap as well as being invited to play some of the countries most loved festivals including The Sea Sessions, Hard Working Class Heroes and Electric Picnic.
In May 2012 they released their first single "You're Gonna Feel It" as part of a double A side with friends and cohorts I Am The Cosmos on the flip.
Their sound has been both widely and wildly compared with that of Fleetwood Mac, DFA, Kraftwerk, Moloko, Prince and John Sedaka to name a few, while they themselves offer that the comparisons made to date, when correct, reveal only a handful of their heroes. However they say their greatest influence is the human brain and while trying to work out how it works they found a reason to start a band as well as subjects to write songs about. With new material for their debut album currently under construction who knows who they'll be likened to next.
