#340: The Travelling Band - Passing Ships (single review)

The Travelling Band – Passing Ships
Out Now

Mancunian purveyors of folk-pop, The Travelling band, get metaphysical on this, the latest single from their forthcoming third album, The Big Defreeze.

Much like their name, the new single from Manchester’s The Travelling Band is imbued with a sense of wanderlust that relishes in the wide, open spaces perpetuated by their latest offering, ‘Passing Ships’. Indebted to the rich history of folk, with glossy slabs of americana thrown in for good measure, the track builds towards multiple crescendos; rising on a wave of mounting keys and understated cello, dropping in to a false finish that once again rises to an emphatic close.
