Comparisons have been drawn with the likes of Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Flaming Lips, Tame Impala and at times, even the rousing film scores of John Barry. Their psychedelic sounds have garnered a passionate following, having toured extensively across the UK and Europe.
In 2012 they released their debut album ‘Doll Skin Flag’ (on iTunes and Spotify) which they recorded with acclaimed producer Mark Gardener (lead singer of seminal 90’s band Ride). Mark described his time working with the band as “a total pleasure, a total trip.”
The band has enjoyed radio airplay from XFM’s John Kennedy, BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq and BBC Radio London Calling’s Gary Crowley.
They receive constant radio play on local radio in the UK, US, Europe and South America. You can listen to Desert Ships at soundcloud.com/desertships
The band have recently returned to the studio with Gardener and started recording their sophomore album. Notable collaborators include German film director Wim Wenders.
