Ships Have Sailed Release New Single + Giveaway

| January 30, 2017 | 3 Comments

LA indie pop band Ships Have Sailed just announced their latest single Up, a song that takes the negative parts of life and demands positive action.

Coming off their November win for Best Alternative Song (Drive) at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards, Ships Have Sailed (Will Carpenter & Art Andranikyan) are back at it with their latest single, Up. Available for download on February 3 (and to stream above), the song’s message is rather poignant in today’s uneasy political climate, even if the original intention of the lyrics was reflective of a more personal experience. Songwriter and producer Will Carpenter says, ͞”[In] a moment that was both happy and sad, reflective and hopeful, satisfied but still hungry, I tried to muster up the words to convey the mix of emotions that this year had evoked. At first it was a thoughtful process, but once the grain of the ideaShips Have Sailed took shape, the music just kind of poured out…and it was incredibly cathartic.”

Ships Have Sailed generously offered to give one lucky Press Pass LA reader a signed drumhead used in the recording of Up! Comment below and tell us what you are standing up for this year and we will randomly select a winner on 2/7.

    With the chaotic mess the majority of us see of the world, it is hard to believe in better days. It is my belief that everyone was put on this earth with a purpose, that being to spread love when the world needs it most. I have a hero complex, however I know I alone cannot fix the world. But the first step to making any sort of impact is standing up, with the hope that it is enough to get your message across. That is what we should live for, this year more than ever.

    I am standing up for love, and hope. How often has the darkness loomed but there is a still a glow on the horizon? How often has the night been eclipsed by the white orb of the moon? During these times of hardships we must gather in light and love to continue to show peace and pass it on for light is illuminating and warmth is contagious.
