Since their inception, Ships Have Sailed have always struck a balance between exuberant pop and substantial alternative rock. Their debut EP ‘Someday’ (2014) was well received on College, NPR and Commercial radio in the US and Canada, catalyzing a Northeastern US tour and more. They took home accolades from ISC and Unsigned Only that same year, furthering the band’s impetus for the release of their first full length album, ‘Moodswings’. The eleven song studio effort earned glowing reviews from Blackbook, Wild Honey Pie, and The 405, again receiving notice from ISC, Unsigned Only and The John Lennon Songwriting Competition, and spawned a sister release ‘Re: MIX’, whose tropical house remixes seemed in perfect step with the evolving music climate.
An invigorated 2016 began with Ships Have Sailed’s acoustic EP, ‘Whispers’. The band spent the summer touring the West coast and set out on an East coast tour in late fall. In November, ‘Drive’ received Best Alternative Song at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards.
On Monday, February 27, 2017 the band will be interviewed by DJ Vybe, and promoting their new single “Up” on Hot Vybe Radio. The interview will be re-aired all week long during the Morning Motivation Mix from 7am to 9am, and touch on many topics that include: life in Los Angeles, the recent U.S. coast to coast tour, balancing marriage and a music career, music influences and inspiration, the recent loss of a band member, and more.
