BRITISH SEA POWER – Anthemic Guitar Pop Avalanche In Antwerp…

Finally after four years Brighton‘s BRITISH SEA POWER are back. Their new, sixth album, the excellent and hopeful post-Brexit record LET THE DANCERS INHERIT THE PARTY is
just one of their best longplayers ever to my ears. The sparkling sextet always combined their crystal clear views on the complex society we live in with optimistic sonic ecstasy
and the new record just does the job perfectly. For some strange reasons the band never became a big act outside of the UK. As a fan myself from day one I actually don’t care as long as they spoil us with amazing music and as long as they come out to play in Belgium. Like yesterday in a cosy, small club in Antwerp. Dazzling exhilaration from start to finish.

The set evolved from anthemic pop euphoria to steamy rock vivacity with a vibrant mix
of new elevating crackers (Bad Bohemian / The Voice Of Ivy Lee / Don’t Let The Sun Get In
The Way
/ Saint Jerome) to several electrifying golden oldies (Waving Flags / I Remember /
No Lucifer / All In It
) and turning up the heat at times with some mind-blowing jams. The jubilant audience, all devoted fans, just loved every second of it and left afterwards with
a big smile on their radiant faces. That is what British Sea Power do to your state of mind. Despite the troubled times we all experience(d) they always give you the heartening and blissful feeling that, without being blind for reality, live is definitely worth living. Music is the dope! Welcome back BSP
