Battleships are less warlike, much more chilled this summer

SUCCESS is so often a matter of being in the right place at the right time - and working incredibly hard the rest of the time.

Sydney-based former Sunshine Coast band Battleships said they've always written music and been in bands together - some good, most bad.

Members Jordan Sturdee (vocals, guitar), Jonathan Bowden (bass, keys), Nato Hannaford (guitar) and Dan McMurray (drums) are a bunch of friends - some since primary school - who've moved states, lugged gear and even written songs via Skype, all in the name of rock'n'roll.

Since forming, the four-piece has been growing its successes based on an indie rock sound with some post-Britpop touches.

The debut single In Retrospect has had some airplay, along with a decent amount of hits for their music video - and in this way the band is winning hearts and minds.

Check them out at the Hoey this afternoon.
