The Sunday Times: “The best band in Britain” | Support: East India Youth | LOUT Promotions | Book Tickets Online
In 2013, ten years on from their debut album, British Sea Power are hitting their stride. New album Machineries Of Joy is a creative high, a superbly composed, multi-stylistic tour de force. Beautifully mechanised rhythms sits alongside wind-blasted Brontë-rock cinematics. Brain-bent garage thrash hurtles in.
// Press Response:
“Fuck this puerile drivel, we’re off to see British Sea Power” – a Rolling Stone review dismisses the entirety of a Reading Festival line-up in favour of BSP.
Guy Garvey: “Not only do British Sea Power own the best name in history, they’re fucking great.”
“Strings and guitars evoke the theme from Blade Runner and the ever-forward momentum of Für Immer by Neu!” – Q magazine on the title track from Machineries Of Joy.
A recent poll of BBC 6Music listeners – on the most important hundred tracks of the station’s lifetime – placed the British Sea Power track Remember Me at number nine, just above Radiohead, just below Johnny Cash. It’s a placing that indicates both the band’s longevity and the deeply dedicated nature of their audience.
