What folks are saying about CITY OF SHIPS:
“Pounding bass lines and quirky rhythms and structures that almost have a math metal sort of vibe, but there's also a constant flow of all kinds of incredibly tactful 'post-' influences, from lush clean passages and swirling, spacey effects to noisier layers of intense guitar work. I'm really fuckin' impressed by this material. Excellent.” –

“The group's frenetic energy and obvious emotional stake in the music which they play is simultaneously impressive and inspiring.” –

“Amidst the ocean of droney post-rock, post-hardcore clones, there are only a couple bands that catch my attention. City of Ships had me hooked from beginning to end.” - Razorcake

“This takes me back to a time of discovering exciting new sounds in the underground scene that really blew minds, from Kerosene 454 to Ethel Meserve — bands unhindered by genre and expressing endless enthusiasm for just playing great music. City of Ships are hard to describe and easy to enjoy, both great things.” - Exclaim
