Following the success of singles “In Retrospect” and “Your Words”, Sydney band Battleships have just released their debut 7 track mini album To You. 2012 has obviously been a huge year for the 4 piece, having played at BIGSOUND and most recently, touring alongside Art of Sleeping and The Paper Kites. It doesn’t stop here as the lads are ready to hit the road once again, this time on their own national headlining tour. We caught up with frontman Jordan Sturdee for a brief chat about their latest project..and sneaky late night Maccas runs.
Last Thursday the Corner Hotel in Melbourne hosted a showcase of some of Triple J’s best Unearthed talent. Headlining the gig was The Paper Kites, with two standout support acts in Battleships and Art of Sleeping.

BUTTERFLY BOUCHER FINAL SHOWCASE GIG IN MELBOURNE
Delivering a strong set at the Oxford Art Factory on Thursday night, it was perfectly clear that Winter People is made up of a truly talented bunch of musicians. An up-and-coming Sydney based five piece that merges folk with rock, Winter People have an admirable ability to play music that is at once tender and powerful. Supported by two other local acts also beginning to make waves in the music scene, Battleships and Caitlin Park, we were certainly treated to an impressive night of music.
