Listen to new single from British Sea Power

With a new album just announced and a UK tour which brings them to Edinburgh in April, British Sea Power are gearing up for a busy year.

The Brighton-based indie band have just released melancholic new single Bad Bohemian – and you can listen to it right here.

The lead single launches their sixth studio album, Let The Dancers Inherit The Party, which is due to released on 31 March.

“It was made to a background of politicians perfecting the art of unabashed lying, of social-media echo chambers, of click-bait and electronic Tonka Toys to keep us entertained and befuddled,” said guitarist Martin Noble.

“All this can easily make the individual feel futile. But I think we’ve ended up addressing this confusion in an invigorating way, rather than imprisoning the listener in melancholy.

“Musically, it’s our most direct album and maybe the first one where we maintain a coherent mood from start to finish.

“Perhaps a little clarity isn’t a bad thing at this point. There wasn’t a plan to create an album with any particular subject matter but we’ve kind of ended up with a case of ’think global, act local’ – an album where individuals are dealing with their domestic and personal lives against a background of uncontrollable international lunacy.”
