On the new single “Disappear”, Ships Have Sailed lead singer Will Carpenter takes center stage with a pensive, piano-driven song that gets even more hypnotic on a second or third listen.
This song may (or may not) be a nod to Bret Easton Ellis’s 1985 novel Less Than Zero, in which a travel billboard proclaiming “Disappear Here” becomes a metaphor for life in Los Angeles. Either way, the single creates a spellbinding mood.
“It’s easy in our society to feel invisible,” says Carpenter. ‘”Disappear’ strives to embrace the darkness that can lay beneath the skin of any human being. To lay it bare in a way that is raw, honest, and also beautiful. We’ve chosen to align the release with Mental Health Awareness month and also Indigenous People’s Day (since so many indigenous women are literally disappearing) and we hope to raise awareness in both areas.”
