Sea Power have shared their new single 'Folly'.
The band recently deleted 'British' from their name, with the announcement causing the newly rechristened Sea Power to trend across Twitter.
New album 'Everything Was Forever' will be released on February 11th, and new single 'Folly' is the latest preview.
A song that first appeared in Sea Power set lists before the pandemic, 'Folly' is self-billed as an 'apocalyptic anthem'.
"'Folly' is in the tradition of singalong Sea Power apocalyptic anthems – everyone ambling down the road to a multitude of catastrophes. Party on! You might find yourself standing up on the South Downs, up on the fells or the dales, looking down at the world, a world where we seem to avoid the decisions and changes to stop the rot. It’s all folly, but in this case set to some pretty life-affirming music – good stuff underpinning the donut vibes and maybe making you think it’s not all over, not quite, not yet."
A surging ode to defiance, 'Folly' is a literate return, one that dares to bite the hand that feeds it. Hamilton again:
"I was thinking of things like greedy overlords playing fart games on the lawns of their great dominions, the enclosure of common lands, bodies, minds, the fantastical gusto of doom and frivolity that feeds the world, me included. I was feeling all on edge, paranoid like the old vampire in Nosferatu when I got into this song."
Tune in now.
'Everything Was Forever' will be released on February 11th.
