The combination of Arcade Fire, Explosions in the Sky and Wild Beasts is an undeniably appealing premise and luckily one that Leeds 6 piece Heart-Ships pull off effortlessly. Aside from being a fantastic song title, 'Five Forks of Lightning' is equally as bold, energetic and anthemic as their previous single 'Pinhole of Light'. Driven by Ryan Cooke’s idiosyncratic rousing vocals, Heart-Ships' sound is remarkably powerful and emotive, even outside of their compelling live shows.

'Five Forks of Lightning' will be available on their forthcoming EP 'EP1' released on 'Label' on 29th April 2013
