Ahead of next month’s visit to Edinburgh, Brighton-based indie band British Sea Power have unveiled the surreal video for new single Keep On Trying (Sechs Freunde). You can watch it right here.
Taken from their soon-to-be-released sixth studio album, Let The Dancers Inherit The Party, the new single’s lyrics refer to the German translation for ‘six degrees of separation’.
Let The Dancers Inherit The Party was recorded in Sussex, London and on the Isle of Skye, and follows the band’s five studio albums for the legendary Rough Trade Records.
“Musically, it’s our most direct album and maybe the first one where we maintain a coherent mood from start to finish,” says BSP guitarist Martin Noble. “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.”
British Sea Power visit Edinburgh’s Liquid Room on Sunday, 9 April as part of their UK tour.
Let The Dancers Inherit The Party is out on March 31.
