On the back of their successful debut mini album ‘To You’, Battleships deliver their new single ‘As You’d Begun’. Previous singles ‘In Retrospect’, ‘Your Words’ and ‘Coming Back to You’, have all found themselves on high rotation on Triple J, as well as receiving support from independent and commercial both in Australia and overseas. Featuring their atmospheric tones once again, ‘As You’d Begun’ combines Battleships’ typical energetic and emotive sound with catchy hooks and infectious beats, showcasing the bands creative musically, as well as their song writing prowess with both delicacy and emotional depth. The self-produced, self-recorded track typifies the Battleships sound, a sound not made of fads or stylised trends but of authenticity and colour. Battleships’ past video clips for ‘In Retrospect’, ‘Your Words’ and ‘Coming Back to You’have become certified talking points, receiving over 210,000 YouTube views between them. Directed by Evan Djirlic, the video for ‘As You’d Begun’ was premiered recently on theMUZU.TV Blog in the UK where it very was well-received, notching up over 21,000 views in a 48 hour period. It is a genuine and arresting representation of the song, enhancing and bringing it to life through visual means.
