Pre-sale of the week is Let The Dancers Inherit The Party by British Sea Power, out on 31 March.
British Sea Power’s new album, Let The Dancers Inherit The Party, is billed as a “reset” for the listener.
“You know the feeling you get after jumping in the sea on a winter morning?” asks British Sea Power guitarist Martin Noble. “We hope the new album is invigorating like that. We hope it acts as a reset – clearing the head and letting you face whatever’s ahead.
“The album,” he continues, “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. 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.”
Let The Dancers Inherit The Party follows 2013’s Machineries Of Joy, and was recorded in London, Sussex and on the Isle of Skye.
