It’s always great to know that there are local guys who are doing incredible things o.s.
Sink Ships is the project of Carl Coleman, a dude originally from Melbourne but who relocated over to Copenhagen a couple of years ago. Carl has joined forces with another Australian as well as a Swede and two local Danes. And although I must say I don’t know a lot about the music scene in Denmark, it seems that these guys are doing alright for themselves, having supported Cass McCombs and The Field in the past.
After spending a considerable time going through the bands’ other songs, I’m constantly struck not just by that lush warm sound that the band manage to convey, but also the intricacies of some of the guitar lines and Carl’s vocals. Carl manages to manoeuvre between the smooth clean vocal tones and that dark gravelly tone with a real sense of ease.
You can check out the clip for their latest track ‘Offered Your Hand’ below. It’s the first official taste of the guys debut album due out later on this year. I’ve also included a couple of other tracks from their EP of last year Half The Boy.
