Cologne-based Shipwrecks have been formed in 2014 and they are playing instrumental, melancholic Post-Rock in the vein of Explosions In The Sky or Pg.Lost. Their approach to this kind of music doesn’t concentrate on creating something brandnew, but it calms the mind, widens the views and maybe eases some daily sorrows. It’s not easy to pick up one special highlight because all songs are build in a cohesive mood made of floating tremolo-melodies and a solid fundament of bass guitar and drums. Sometimes, I miss more dynamics and eruptions – Shipwrecks decide to stay on the dreamy and wistful side, where the most of us need to dive in from time to time.
