From a music scene which over the decades has perpetually produced some striking and inventive bands, Sheffield hailing Liberty Ship make a big suggestion that they could be another to add to the list of successes with the release of new single Learning to Fly.
Creating a mix of indie and melodic rock, the band since emerging at the beginning of 2012, has built a potent reputation for their sound and a live presence which has seen them play alongside amongst many the likes of King Charles, Reverend and The Makers, and just recently The Carnabys. They have also opened up the main stage at last year’s Tramlines Festival and found tracks like What Point come under close attention from BBC Introducing Sheffield. Now it is the turn of Learning to Fly to stir up a greater number of ears and fuss the way of the band; a success easy to see being swift and sure.
A guitar jangle entices ears first, swinging rhythms and further melodic enterprise in tow as the lead vocals of acoustic guitarist Lewis Hancock bring their potent tempting and expression to the swiftly brewing party. In no time into a vivacious stroll led by the catchy exploits of lead guitarist Jack Eddison and Hancock’s emotive strums, the song offers up a vibrant and increasingly infectiously proposal akin to a fusion of The Housemartins and The Mighty Lemon Drops.
There is no escaping the catchy prowess and adventure of the song, its melodic eagerness contrasted yet accentuated by the darker roam of James Brown’s bassline and the firmly landing beats of Kierran Bond. It is a captivating mix added to by the great harmonies across the rest of the band which back up Hancock’s lead.
A feel good single sure to enliven the spirit of any day, Learning to Fly has plenty to suggest why there is such a keenly growing awareness around Liberty Ship and to spark an appetite for more of their tenacious rock ‘n’ roll in those it arouses.
Learning to Fly is self-released April 1st @ http://libertyshipband.bandcamp.com/album/learning-to-fly-single
