Ships is the project of musicians and artists Simon Cullen and Sorca McGrath. Based in Ireland, the duo are yet another entry into the country’s solid electronic music stable. Cullen is formerly of Les Bien and part of the art collective Synth Eastwood, while McGrath hails from the band Palomine. The result of the band’s talents (combined with Cian Murphy of I Am The Cosmos) is no less than stunning.
“Places” starts on a sea of calm synths and Sorca’s soft, echo-laden vocals. Halfway through the track Ships shift into an arp-laden, upbeat electronica. It’s anthemic, beautiful and totally necessary.
