Sydney-based Battleships are back with a second single “Your Words,” which does nothing but contribute to the buzz surrounding this talented band. After their gorgeous first single “In Retrospect” enthralled Australian fans, it was also well-received in the UK, receiving regular airplay on BBC6 and Q Radio. They’re also scheduled to appear at this year’s Big Sound Music Conference in Brisbane – Australia’s SXSW counterpart.
“In Your Words” is again a highly expressive piece of music. Battleships have a real talent for building throughout their songs, and this track achieves this perfectly. From a gentle opening, the track climaxes in powerful, driving guitar layers and rolling percussion – with lead singer Jordan Sturdee’s warm vocals rising and falling throughout.
With their debut EP not far off (the release is scheduled for October), and two terrific singles in the bag, Battleships look poised to blow up in the back-half of 2012.
