Liverpool’s very own gyspy-rock band, The Shipbuilders, are set to release their latest doubled-sided single, Silk Road, to all major digital platforms from the May 24th 2019.
The Shipbuilders create a beautifully gritty, guitar-heavy track that continues their voyage towards the understanding with Silk Road. Packed with powerful songwriting and an authentic principal vocal, every line in Silk Road unveils a new layer of their indie pop magic. On the reverse is b-side, La Fee Verte which backs Silk Road with a moody undertone and equally melodic rhythm.
Silk Road marks a moment of change for the band, their first release under new label Mai 68. Their self-esteem evolved into self-belief, leaving us with song about chasing a collective dream; unified by excitement and starry-eyed wonder, it’s a song of unity, adventure and following those you love into one more spring.
“Guitars shimmer like distant stars reflected in the fugitive tide, drum and bass pound like the crashing of its waves and voices wail above it all, desperate for you to stay one more season..”
The Shipbuilders are perhaps the first of their kind to come from the city of Liverpool; a collective of passionate “scouse-surf” musicians using their clever lyricism and unmatched charm to tell personal stories and expose their soul.
The band’s glistening, guitar-souring sound will immediately catch the attention of fans of Echo & the Bunnymen, The Stone Roses and British Sea Power.
The band will play a string of shows in the upcoming months, starting things off in their hometown of Liverpool;
The Shipping Forecast – Liverpool 26th May – Single Launch
Eagle Inn – Salford – 14th June
Un Deg Un – Wrexham 21tst June
Fox & Newt – Leeds – 20th July
Kendal Calling – 27th July
Silk Road, backed by “La Fee Verte” – The Shipbuilders will be available on all major digital streaming platforms from the 24th May 2019.
