The LP veered away from today’s single-driven musical climate with a well-rounded, full-length story intended to be heard from the beginning to the end; with a theme that echoes the band’s name, a positive spin on the phrase “That ship has sailed,” as it meditates on change’s ability to impact one’s life at any moment. Moodswings received many accolades, including BlackBook, The 405, Impose and A Music Blog, Yea?:
"Electro Pop-Rock trio Ships Have Sailed may be your favorite new discovery… featuring a few of our favorite things: hard-hitting beats, angsty male vocals, and bubbling electronic flares.” - BlackBook
“Complete with bombastic drums, an epic guitar solo, and just-rugged-enough vocals, it's a massive tune that'll have you keeping it on repeat.”
- The 405 Premiere of “If Only”
“Instantly Catchy” - A Music Blog, Yea?
During the release of their full length, the band also found their track “Midnight” included in the feature film, BRAND: A Second Coming, played showcases at 2015’s SXSW and Canadian Music Week and once again gained heavy airplay on College and Commercial radio.
