British Sea Power – Let the Dancers Inherit the Party
The first album of new music from British
Sea Power since 2013 was created as political divides tore through Britain. More specifically, and to use the band’s Martin Noble’s words, “To a background of politicians perfecting the art of unabashed lying”. Recorded after a successful crowdfunding campaign last year, melody is at the forefront as the six-piece produce a record full of hope against “international lunacy”. International Space Station is the notable standout track, its excitable keyboard line zipping along while the album closes beautifully through the dreamy, hazy, sprawls of Alone Piano. Let The Dancers Inherit The Party provides the message that it is organisation and hope that will transport society forward, not despair.
