Sinking Ship – Balthazar (Single Review)

Sinking Ship is the kind of anthem written with summer in mind: a song to enjoy at the beach with beer in hand.

If you have already listened to the song, you will understand that was a joke (if you are looking for pop nonsense about beaches, look elsewhere). While not a summer anthem, Sinking Ship is a spectacularly gloomy piece of pop perfection. Boasting a disturbingly dark music video which sets the tone for the song, it manages to sound upbeat while singing of rats deserting their ships. An excellent introduction to Balthazar and what they do.
