The Dead Ships – You Were Young

deadshipsI found LA-based The Dead Ships while scouring the internet for new music, stumbling across them via Buzzbands LA. I’m glad I did.

The Dead Ships create jams made for beers and dimly lit bars, enhanced by gruff vocals and pop melodies that enhance the sound into something destined to leave behind those self-same bar room floors. “You Were Young” is my favorite track off their excellent The Dead Ships EP. It’s filled with ooh’s and whoa’s, backed by some sparse garage rock instrumentation that jangles right along to vocalist Devlin McCluskey’s soulful vocals.

At 2:27 into the track, the song takes on a new life and roars into “A” status, cementing this duo as a band to watch.

You can find The Dead Ships on Facebook and follow them on Twitter. If you want to pick up The Dead Ships EP, and you should, it’s available for free via the band’s bandcamp page below.
