about

In August 2012, the band teamed up with the RNLI to convert the Hayling Island lifeboat station on the south coast into a recording studio for their latest release. Recording the guitars in amongst the lifeboats with the crackle of emergency radio, the drums in the crew room among the life jackets and rescue equipment, and the keyboards out on the slipway by the beach, the band also embarked on a field recording session to collect samples for the new recordings and images for the artwork.

Musically, Listing Ships take inspiration from classic krautrock like Can, Harmonia, Neu!, La Dusseldorf, Ash Ra Tempel; sample-heavy, intricate electronica like Boards of Canada, Amon Tobin, Seefeel; expansive, exploratory guitar music like Tarentel, The Alps, Collections of Colonies of Bees; kings of the soundtrack world like Clint Mansell and Krzysztof Penderecki.
