"We've heard two Liberty Ship tracks set for release early this year and they are, no word of a lie, phenomenal. Lee Mavers like phenomenal. That good." - This Feeling / Fred Perry Subculture 'Big in 2016'
"This young Sheffield band are on the precipice of something huge. Harmonies, soulful
singing and a bluesy, rock and roll edge that you don’t see much in music these days,
Liberty Ship are destined for success – it’s just a matter of when, not if." - Vibe Sheffield
"Just heard the incredible new track from Liberty Ship...which will also feature exclusive artwork from Kid Acne. That's just two brilliant Sheffield institutes coming together there to make something fantastic!" - Christian Carlisle, BBC Introducing Sheffield
From the global indie success of their debut ‘Learning to Fly’ and follow-up ‘Don’t Wish’, and live sets at the likes of Isle of Wight, Kendal Calling, Y Not and Leeds Festivals, ‘Cast Away’ is the third single from Sheffield quartet Liberty Ship, one of two tracks set to kick-start the band into conquering 2017.
‘Cast Away’ is an energetic cut priding itself on the preservation of authentic rock ‘n’ roll whilst capturing a youthful buoyancy illustrating its merit as a live favourite. Rhythmic acoustic guitar backs Lewis Hancock’s raw-yet-soulful vocal delivery, suitably interrupted by a confident guitar solo in true rock ‘n’ roll form. The track’s adept production was executed by Reverend & the Maker’s Ed Cosens prior to the band’s tour with the fellow Sheffield rock group, and is the first of two in the partnership.
The band have become a part of Sheffield’s perpetually exciting music scene having sold out the Leadmill, scooped a spot opening the main stage for The Libertines at Tramlines Festival and having last year gained a slot opening for Milburn at their sold-out run at O2 Academy Sheffield.
“It’s about the dream of escape. When you’re sat sharing a bottle of cider with your best mate nothing matters. We’ve cast away from all you. We’re invincible, try and stop us.” – Jack Eddison (Lead Guitar)
With ‘Cast Away’ Liberty Ship continue to drop what has been described as generation defining music, with an offering of spirited youth making the four-piece destined for further festival fame this summer with sunny, lively rock ‘n’ roll.
