From the global indie success of their debut ‘Learning to Fly’ and follow-up ‘Don’t Wish’, and live sets at the likes of Isle of Wight, Kendal Calling, Y Not and Leeds Festivals, ‘Cast Away’ is the third single from Sheffield quartet Liberty Ship, one of two tracks set to kick- start the band into conquering 2017.

‘Cast Away’ is an energetic cut priding itself on the preservation of authentic rock ‘n’ roll whilst capturing a youthful buoyancy illustrating its merit as a live favourite. Rhythmic acoustic guitar backs Lewis Hancock’s raw-yet-soulful vocal delivery, suitably interrupted by a confident guitar solo in true rock ‘n’ roll form. The track’s adept production was executed by Reverend & the Maker’s Ed Cosens prior to the band’s tour with the fellow Sheffield rock group, and is the first of two in the partnership.

The band have become a part of Sheffield’s perpetually exciting music scene having sold out the Leadmill, opened the main stage at Tramlines Festival and having last year gained a slot opening for Milburn at their sold-out run at O2 Academy Sheffield.

“It’s about the dream of escape. When you’re sat sharing a bottle of cider with your best mate nothing matters. We’ve cast away from all you. We’re invincible, try and stop us.” – Jack Eddison (Lead Guitar)

With ‘Cast Away’ Liberty Ship continue to drop what has been described as generation- defining music, with an offering of spirited youth making the four-piece destined for further festival fame this summer with sunny, lively rock ‘n’ roll.
