"A band making their mark" - CLASH MAGAZINE
Experimental rock trio Tall Ships swap instruments throughout their set, endless layering and looping samples to build a wall sound, featuring a strong rhythm section, an array of electronic beats and great, melodic vocals. Tall Ships are, in every sense of the term, a live band.
This year saw the band build on a busy 2010 by being featured in various ‘One’s to watch’ lists including Clash magazine. Win plaudits from the Guardian, Artrocker and NME. Tour with We Are Scientists, Three Trapped Tigers, support Metronomy in Brazil plus play storming sets at Live at Leeds, Camden Crawl, Great Escape, Sound City, Stag & Dagger, Hop Farm, Bestival and CMJ (NY) festivals.
This will be your last chance to see the band play in London this year and hear new songs of their forthcoming album. It'll be a show you won't want to miss!
