British Sea Power – Waving Flags


Breathe in that refreshing air: British Sea Power are back! Their third LP, the irritatingly titled Do You Like Rock Music? is released next week and has been preceded by this single. Comparisons to Arcade Fire abound, but the sound is certainly a small extension to the kind of music on show towards the end of Open Season, retaining the open air, almost polar mood present on tracks like ‘True Adventures‘ and ‘Oh Larsen B‘, and for that they are truly unique. A full review of Do You Like Rock Music will follow next week, but suffice to say that so far betwixt this and Sons & Daughters’ This Gift 2008 can claim at least 2 superb LPs before January is out. A great start to the year.
