Monday saw the release of the first proper single from Manchester band Airship. Entitled “Kids,” the track will be part of their forthcoming album Stuck in this Ocean, out this autumn on Play It Again, Sam. The album was produced by Dan Austin, who has also worked with Doves (and Cherry Ghost unfortunately).
The band has developed nicely since they formed in 2008. I caught them at a small club in North London in early ’09, and whilst they seemed a little rough around the edges, there was also a ton of promise in their fuzz-pop. “Kids” is cracking, surely their best tune yet.
Below you can grab a free remix and check out some festival dates this summer.
