BRITISH SEA POWER have always taken a broad and panoramic perspective drawing on historical events and mirroring the ageless wonders of the natural world.
March 2017’s epic album Let The Dancers Inherit The Party covers everything from the stars at night to media manipulation; alluding to a world of chaos and disorder whilst answering with optimism and hope. Melodic, direct and urgent, rock muscle conjoins immediate pop like a crate of champagne exploding in a Marshall stack.
It follows on from 2013’s Machineries Of Joy (‘Their best record yet, a triumph of sophisticated rock engineering” – Q Mag) and since then the band have released two film soundtracks and recorded a third; delivered the theme to BT Sports European Championship; re-issued their classic debut album The Decline of British Sea Power and 2015 compilation Sea Of Brass (a kind of best-of-BSP recorded with the UK’s leading brass orchestras).
All the while enthralling fans by gigging in ever more bizarre and unconventional locations.
Let The Dancers Inherit The Party is a return to the exhilarating guitar music that has seen them nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and drawn praise from David Bowie and Lou Reed. Not to mention the National Maritime Museum, Doctor Who, Harry Potter and Sherlock Holmes.
In a world of manufactured and formulaic pop, British Sea Power stand head and shoulders above all in a triumph of originality and pushing the envelope. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
