THE BIG BEAT Song of the Week: Tall Ships – “Home”

I always do my best to listen to everything that comes my way, but once in a while, something slips through the cracks. My sincerest apologies for nearly letting the sophomore release from Brighton’s Tall Ships pass by with zero spins on the show. Impressions was released back in March and I had it on repeat for most of this past weekend. It’s my pleasure to share a track on the show by the name of “Home” and we hope to see them stateside very soon.
