With Intelligent Dance Music (IDM) having been a thing ever since the days of "Selected Ambient Works", it was only a matter of time before some guitar band would take to labelling themselves as 'intelligent indie.' Flying the banner for this new wave is Sydney based quartet Battleships.
Their 2nd single, "Your Words", is an interesting piece of post-Britpop inspired rock filtered through the lens of hindsight, and carries a chorus seemingly tailor made for stadium anthemics. I imagine that they are the sort of band that secretly keep copies of "A Rush of Blood To The Head" inside the CD case of their Shins albums.
"Your Words" is available to download now.
