Ships Piano are a mix of jangly overdriven guitars, hyperactive drums and slinky basslines. Songwriters Seb Hoppen and Liam Moran write brash, melodic songs about relationship breakdowns, unwanted houseguests and embarrassing incidents at the local pub.
Ships Piano formed in high school over a love of ’90s American Post-Hardcore and ’80s Australian Power Pop. They have recorded and self-released two EPs ‘Acrobats Tumble’ and ‘Casper’ and released their debut album ‘Treehouse’ last year on WAMD! Records with a launch at Yah Yah’s. ‘Treehouse’ was recorded in a warehouse in Fairfield and features the singles ‘I’m Not Angry’, ‘Warmth of the Bar’ and ‘Joe’s Song’. The album is available on vinyl at Oh Jean! Records, Greville Records, Polyester Records and online.
Ships Piano have shared the stage with Future of the Left, Waaves, Kelley Stoltz, the Pretty Littles, Dick Diver and Panel of Judges among many others.
