The 'Half The Boy' EP was recorded, mixed and mastered by Mads Brinch Nielsen (4 Guys From The Future/One Year From Home) between January - August 2011 at Viktoria Studios in Copenhagen.
It was released in August 2012 via Copenhagen-based label Slow Records.
Sink Ships is heartworn alt-country-rock made by two Australians, a Swede and two Danes, based in Copenhagen. They sing tales of heartache, distance, love, urban melancholia and homesick blues over twangy lap-steel guitar, wailing violin and a ragged rhythm section. It's tender, timeless and longing in all the right places, rocking and raw everywhere else. Plowing a sonic road that fans of Uncle Tupelo, Songs: Ohia, Big Star, My Morning Jacket and Neil Young & Crazy Horse will find agreeable, but emerging at the end with something utterly their own, Sink Ships just might be the best new band you haven't heard yet.
The band have supported artists such as Phosphorescent, Cass McCombs, David Eugene Edwards (Wovenhand/16 Horsepower), Mark Eitzel (American Music Club), British troubadour Pete Molinari, art-rockers Field Music and Danish artists such as The Rumour Said Fire and Christian Hjelm.
Sink Ships is currently:
Carl Coleman - guitars, vocals, banjo, harmonica
Andreas Linnet Jessen - bass guitar, vocals
Emilia Olson - violin
Matthew Moller - drums, percussion
Theis Mikkelsen - lap-steel guitar
