Having originally formed back in 2008, it may have taken me six years to hear of Manchester’s The Travelling Band, but I would wait six more if it meant hearing another song from them just as good as their new single Passing Ships. A rollicking folk-anthem, Passing Ships is a playful track that feels like it would be perfect for an advert, mini-film or just as a little story in itself. Inherently warm, its charming folk melodies, rocking piano, strings, sonorous vocals, buoyant guitar and swift tempo changes (I could go on…) all combine with a rousing perfection that has truly stolen my heart.
