With the release of Guytano’s debut full-length album, Music Notes Global talked to the rock quartet about the album and their writing process.
“In the end, we had an amazing time writing and recording this. What could be better than hanging out with your best friends, playing music until 3am, sleeping on the floor, and eating cold pizza! It was just complete good vibes.”

The four part alt rock band hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota released their debut full-length album today. Online publication, That Mag, took special interest in the up and coming bands release, rating it “bad-ass”.
“If you want to try something completely different, listen to “Blue Skies.” Everything about this song just says artistry. It starts out with killer guitar riffs and catchy synths, but then changes tempo. In fact, this song changes tempo a lot, but it’s still a very cohesive song. It’s a little bit Two Door Cinema Club, a little bit Keane, and 100 percent Guytano. It has some really sick guitar grooves, some tropical and reggae-inspired elements, and arrangement is unique and unexpected.”

For some people, music is just in their blood. That’s no exception for indie performer and singer-songwriter, Frank Moyo. Recently he sat down to talk about his passion for music and his debut solo EP, “Waves of Emotion”.
“Since I can remember I have always wanted music to be my primary focus in life. I remember singing and playing Elvis with an imaginary guitar at family functions as a kid. My first memory that sits in my mind is buying my first guitar. I had passed by the window of a music shop that was run by my grandmother’s neighbor and immediately fell in love with it. After I bought it, the owner of the shop gave me some lessons and quickly after that I began writing my own songs. Using simple chords, I began to write nearly a song a day, rushing home from elementary school just to play my guitar until I had to go to bed.”

Ships Have Sailed have left the comfort of the West Coast to head out on an East Coast Tour hitting both Somerville and Cambridge. Vanyaland got the inside scoop on what it’s like to break down each show to cater to the audience.
“We are able to cater to a wider variety of venues and really tailor our set to the show we’re playing. We’ve been playing full-scale sets, but here and there we’ve been stripping down to ‘almost acoustic’ and playing all the tracks off Whispers as well as some of the softer stuff off ‘Someday’… it’s really gratifying to see people respond to the range we can offer, and it helps keep the sets fresh for us as well!”
