‘Black Submarine‘ (formerly known as ‘Black Ships’), are an English Rock Band formed by former members of The Verve, Nick McCabe (Guitar) and Simon Jones (Bass).
The experimental sound from their recently released track ‘Black Submarine’ is certainly more along the lines of earlier releases by The Verve (A Storm in Heaven, A Northern Soul) rather than Urban Hymns type stuff. Hints of Nine Inch Nails and other electronic groups like U.N.K.L.E. can also be heard.
McCabe and Jones have been working with Davide Rossi (multi-instrumentalist/string arranger for Goldfrapp/Coldplay), Michele ‘Mig’ Schillace (ex-drummer for Portishead/Santa Cruz) and London-based vocalist Amelia Tucker since 2008 after Rossi provided the string parts for The Verve’s “Forth“.
