Video of the Moment #2190: Tall Ships

It’s been an age since we’ve heard a peep out of Tall Ships. The Brighton hard-rocking band – now a quartet – haven’t released any new material since early 2015, so we’re pleased to hear they’ve returned. As its title suggests, ‘Meditations on Loss’ is meant to have an introspective bent. However, as previous Tall Ships releases, the new song has a loud, full freneticism that comes across as anthemic.

The accompanying video according to the band, is meant to “represent the futility of existence…The sprint from birth to death and the constant questioning of what we’re running from, for or to. The video was directed by, and features, close friends and family.” Indeed, this promo was directed by Tall Ships frontman Ric Phethean’s brother Ben. Ric’s cousin Tama also makes a guest appearance in the video. Watch the heart-pounding video for ‘Meditations on Loss’ below. The band will be also be returning to the road, supporting Cambridge group Lonely the Brave on tour in the UK in October and also make an appearance at Manchester’s Neighbourhood Festival on the 8th of October.
