Customer Reviews

Joy Division of the Merchant Marine

British Sea Power are the best kept secret in English rock but the energy and grandeur of this new EP suggests that the secret will shortly be de-encrypted and set free for all to enjoy. The sweep, scale and perspective of BSP's "High Church amplified rock music" makes most indie music seem callow and parochial in comparison.

Their fantastically poetic indie-rock should be recommended to all

When Yan enrolled at the University of Reading, he met like-minded...
