Says Rob Vicars (wars vocalist); “Releasing our debut album, ‘We Are Islands, After All’ has been incredible for all of us in wars, and although we’re already writing new material, there’s lots we still have left to explore that we touched upon on that record; ‘Salt Flat Sailing’ is a song about utilising loneliness and solitude to tackle your darkest moments – taking that feeling of disquiet and disconnect so many of us are haunted by and being present in it.
We shot the video a while back now, but as we are about to head out on tour with Create To Inspire, we thought now was the right time to share it. We hope you love it.”
