This song, written by Rice himself captures the raw pain of loss. “I think most of us can relate to the scenario that we know something or someone that’s not right for us, but it feels so great at the time that the rush of it makes us untie the bowlines and rush out to the open ocean just to discover that we’re in a perfect storm where we are stranded…no one is coming for us and we’re all alone,” says Rice. “It was easy to write this song in a very truthful and genuine way because I was just describing things that most of us feel sometime in our life.”
The music video to Sinking Ship was filmed at 1087 Studios by Jake Parker of Common Era Productions. The video’s somber setting compliments the tone of the song without distracting from Rice’s raw, acoustic, intimate performance.
