Band: SEA POWER
Who: Longtime indie pop/rockers from Brighton UK.
For 20 years, they named themselves British Sea Power,
now they have decided to change it to just Sea Power.
Why? Here’s an extract of the band’s statement:
“After much reflection and soul-searching, the band formerly known as British Sea Power
have modified their name to simply Sea Power. We’ve been British Sea Power for 20 years,
an amazing 20 years, when we’ve been able to continually traverse the British Isles, to travel
the world, encountering many friendly faces, not least in the band’s remarkable audience. But the name British Sea Power had come to feel constricting, like an ancient legacy we were carrying with us…
We all still live within the British Isles, but we are now just Sea Power. We feel the name change comes in part from the band’s audience – who at a good show will shout out, “Sea Power! Sea Power!” Maybe this name change has been there for years, shouted in our ears. It’s just taken us this long to realise – to hear what was there in front of us…”
NEW ALBUM: EVERYTHING WAS FOREVER
Their 8th longplayer
Release: 11th February 2022
LEAD SINGLE: TWO FINGERS
Vintage power pop that always gives me a heartening
and blissful feeling. They resonate as if this troubled
world we live in has a hopeful future. Two Fingers is
a glistening gem. Welcome Sea Power.
