New Zealand's Most 'Sea Worthy' Shanty Group™ have been belting out traditional sea songs from Aotearoa, France, Spain, the UK and more, for about 3 years now. Sailors and landlubbers from across the country have been battered by the rousing chorus of this two-man tempest of pure shanty. The W.S.S.S believe that 'a shanty shared is a shanty savoured', so they pass out shanty song sheets to one and all so people can sing along,

The W.S.S.S comprise Vorn Dont le Père Etait Marin, from the indie pop band Vorn, and Lake Davineer, from the electro pop band Urbantramper. Vorn is on squeeze box duties, while Lake strums the git-fiddle. Rousing harmonies and raucous foot-stomping abound!

"Probably New Zealand's best dance album of the year" - Sunday Star Times.

"Their live performances have turned into raucous crowd-participating evenings around the capital and there's certainly a Mumford and Sons-style danceability to these nine tracks which take them beyond simple comic value - although you'll be hard-pressed not to listen with a smile on your face."
