[Indie Folk] The Travelling Band – Passing Ships

The Travelling Band
Passing Ships

Here’s a feel-good track for you. It has been a while since they last released something, but like many other British folk groups,¬†The Travelling Band¬†never disappoints. This recent single features a smooth and beautiful instrumental consisted of various instruments without overshadowing the vocals. This new sound in recent folk music is driving the indie scene and is used by front runners of the genre like Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Of Monster and Men, etc.

For those who’ve always been a sucker for songs that have a good buildup, this track delivers all that and more. The harmonization of the vocals, and the upbeat, yet subtle climb towards the end of the song just all come together magically. It reminds us of the famous one-hit wonder “Welcome Home” by Radical Face. In all honesty, it’s so good that you could imagine a snippet of this song being featured in a commercial, being listened to on the way to school or work in hopes of it brightening up your day.

With their new album releasing on Aug 25, the band is currently getting ready to go on tour in the UK starting August. Needless to say, we are really excited to see what new music this group has to offer.
