British Sea Power are a band synonymous with an approach to creating the live experience. They have shared stages with, and stolen the festival thunder from a range of highly regarded artists, all of whom bow to the performing chops of BSP.
They don't just navigate the easy path of performance though — they've played on top of the Great Wall of China, they've played at the CERN atom-research labs and in the hall of London's famous Natural History Museum. They've rocked London's Czech Embassy and played beneath the big astronomical dish at Jodrell Bank. They've played on ships at sea, deep inside Cornish slate mines. The intensity and invention of the band's shows made them Time Out magazine's Live Band Of The Year in 2004. And now they're back with a new album, and a whole bunch of reasons to take the show back on the road.
New album Let The Dancers Inherit The Party is a smooth and swaggering album of effective tunes that further expand the consciousness of the BSP audience. Songwriting Yan Wilkinson delivers some of his best pieces in years, and the band sound as tight as ever. British Sea Power are once again proving that they're the band to watch this year.
