Paintings Of Ships













PAINTINGS OF SHIPS are a trio from North London, formed in early 2009, who
offer up a heartfelt, poppy, nautically tinged kind of grungey, melodic
indie. Londoner Daniel Clancy (vocals and guitar) formed the band with Northerner
Catherine Wilson, previously of St Elmo’s Fire, on (bass and vocals). They
went for the geographical middle ground when choosing Midlander Matt Hill,
of Faster and Port Sunlight, on drums.

Paintings of Ships played their first show at The Brief in Croydon in June
2009, and have moved on with numerous gigs, festival appearances and
acoustic sessions across the city. The band take their influences from a
range of post-punk bands, melodic lo-fi groups and the feel and sound of the
early ’90s.

Their debut EP ‘Shore For Sure’, featuring the tracks ‘Paintings of Ships’,
‘Headlines’, ‘Stars For Satellites’ and ‘The Great Outdoors’ was released in
June 2010.

We should have one of their tracks up on The Northern Line radio player very shortly. But if you cannot wait check out their sounds at myspace;
