Ships – ‘Space Inside’

Ships 2014

Dublin duo Ships, consisting of producer Simon Cullen and singer Sorca McGrath, have been pretty quiet over the past 12 months or so. The duo returned late last month with a new 7″, ‘Space Inside’ and their brilliance has been anything but diminished during this period of relative quiet.

‘Space Inside’ and b-side counterpart ‘None of it Real’ are irresistibly brilliant and uber-cool, staggeringly smooth and funky disco-jams. Although ‘None of it Real’ ain’t to be sniffed at, the pick of the pair is ‘Space Inside’. A funky floor filling party tune, interspersed with cowbells, handclaps and resplendent, pulsating and relentless electronics. It’s just so, so good. “There’s no resistance, there’s nothing left to find,” Cullen words, perhaps singularly proclaim the duo’s rationale. Undeniably addictive and impossible to resist, given the chance, both will impose their will on you. Ships’ pair of new tunes have been on constant rotation here for weeks now and that pattern shows no sign of letting up.

Ships’ ‘Space Inside/None if it Real’ is out now on Stratosfear Recordings. Try ’em below & but ’em here.

Introducing: Ships

Ships is a new project from Laser Tom and The Blast Crew’s Simon Cullen and Sorcha McGrath.

The duo from Dublin met a few years previous and have now finished some songs and settled on the name, Ships. As with Cullen’s other work, DFA Records courses through the veins of this new project too, captured exquisitely on their debut ‘Two Hearts’. I was only introduced to these guys over the festive period but I really hope we hear plenty more from them soon.

Well, until then enjoy the  pulsating and relentless electronic sounds of ‘Two Hearts.
