Sydney's Battleships are a huge favorite of mine, one of the most gorgeous bands Australia has produced recently. Their first two singles "Your Words" and "In Retrospect" were hugely popular upon release, receiving plenty of radio support domestically and abroad (mainly in the UK). After a number of support slots and acclaimed performances at the Big Sound Music Conference, they recently released a 7-track mini-album "To You" and announced details of their own National Tour.

"To You" includes the band's first two singles, plus five fresh tracks, each as tender and haunting as the last. "Coming Back To You" combines the strengths that made their previous releases stand outs "“- their intelligent instrumental arrangements combined with the lingering tones of vocalist Jordan Sturdee. "Collision (Head On)" builds from subdued beginnings, before dropping off again quickly, while the album's final track, "Another Way," is perhaps the most stirring of all their material.

Quickly announcing themselves on the list of bands to watch, Battleships don't look like they'll be slowing down anytime soon.
