Tall Ships - Welcome to LitleBig
Wielding guitars, samplers, synths, bass, drums and so many macho moves you don’t know where to look, Tall Ships are going to make you dance. Tall Ships fuse the energy and stylings of Battles and Foals with influences as wide ranging as Why?, Prince and Explosions In The Sky to form a dynamic musical marvel, full of excitement and intricacies.
Surrounded by creative talent in Falmouth, they spent their first rehearsals in the local W.I. hall. They’ve now moved on to Brighton, not forgetting their artistic west country friends who will continue to create artwork, videos and remixes, maintaining the creative community around them. As such, this debut, self-titled EP (which sold out on pre-orders alone) was released in screen printed, hand packaged cardboard sleeves, individually numbered and limited to just 250 copies. With a second, equally DIY pressing now on its way, the fact that these CDs are selling so quickly is testament to the excitement rapidly building around the three-piece.
Having recently toured the UK with good friends Tubelord, wowing crowds up and down the country with their instrument swapping, loop pedal abusing theatrics, Tall Ships will be back out on the road this autumn, armed with new songs ahead of their second EP release.
