Song Review: Ships Have Sailed “Criminal”

 

Sometimes less is more. The bare bones sound of Ships Have Sailed’s “Criminal” weaves ambient noise and slow-pulsing drums to glide you through its introduction. The lyrics are soft spoken, succinct, and chosen with delicate consideration. Toward the latter end of the record, Ships gracefully guides their listeners with a choir-esq “oh” chant and a drum pattern reminiscent of a high school marching band. The song is short and sweet. And coming in exactly 2 minutes, Ships asserts that they have the moxie to move music enthusiasts merely with drums, vocals, and an atmospheric background.  You can buy their album on iTunes here.
