Premiere: Hear Ships Have Sailed’s New Track ‘Drive’

If you’re a fan of AWOLNATION, then Electro Pop-Rock trio Ships Have Sailed may be your favorite new discovery. Formed by Will Carpenter (guitar, vocals) from Hip Hop outfit 7 Lions, the band saw enough success with their EP Someday to tour the East Coast, where they simultaneously got to work on their LP Moodswings, out on March 10th. Their track “Drive” features a few of our favorite things: hard-hitting beats, angsty male vocals, and bubbling electronic flares.

About the song, Carpenter says, “’Drive’ was conceived as a timesless love song, not in the sense of ‘classic’ love, but more as a non-linear representation of love that is both present and nostalgic simultaneously, and is felt as a constant presence throughout one’s life no matter where one exists in the universe.” He also mentioned that the song was partially inspired by the film Sliding Doors.
