Since forming, the four-piece have exceeded even their own expectations. Their debut single In Retrospect landed on high rotation on Australian national and community radio as well as receiving international attention from the likes of BBC6 and Q Radio in the UK. The music video for the song has done well in it’s own right, receiving airtime on national television as well as exposure on many blogs and websites, both nationally and internationally. Their follow up single Your Words has already been added to rotation on Triple J, and looks set to propel the band on even further.
Battleships’ music tips its hat to the differing influences of the band’s individual members, blending indie rock sensibilities with the aesthetics of Post-Britpop, to create a sound entirely their own. They set out to create music that they enjoy playing, something that they themselves would listen to… and hopefully, something that you would listen to too.
