Sydney's Battleships have just untethered their debut release, a seven-track mini album entitled 'To You'. Off the back of the hootin' and hollerin' they created with their two singles 'In Retrospect' and "Your Words" they will take what they got out on the road for your live aural pleasure.
'In Retrospect' and 'Your Words' are both featured on 'To You', as well as five other tracks which add substance and depth to Battleships' extremely well considered and bewitching sound.
Battleships have recorded, mixed and produced 'To You' themselves, with Don Bartley (Lisa Mitchell, The Vines, Silver Chair) once again adding his expertise to the mastering process. The mini album was released last Friday through MGM so expect to see it all over the place for purchasing.
In support of 'To You', Battleships will hit the road for a national tour. Talks about busy- the boys have just completed a national tour supporting The Paper Kites with Art Of Sleeping, as well as showcasing at BIGSOUND. These guys are fast building a reputation for their live show as evidenced by the fact that were crowned winners of the Homebake competition, whose past recipients include Boy And Bear and The Rubens.
