British Sea Power


I am currently listening to British Sea Power's latest album. As well as being a great band they sing about topics with nautical and geographical themes as diverse as the Larsen B ice shelf and the floods at Canvey Island being a herald of climate change's destruction.

The sleeve notes starts as follows: "There's hardly anything more impressive than a great sheet of water which is motionless and soundless. At such rare moments at sea it is almost frightening - and then when the moon comes up, then it is truly a shining level".

Just fab.

Their latest is only just out in the UK so might not be out elsewhere for a few weeks.

They are very alternative indie british rock, used to play the pubs/clubs in Brighton, so if you like that sort of thing you'll like them.
