A new addictive page
British Sea Power - Valhalla Dancehall

Splicing the spirit of ancient Viking alcoholics with some red-hot Jamaican jah, BSP are finally having fun. Yet their orchestral rock still finds time across thirteen chiming tracks to become thoughtful, melancholic and pastorally emotive.

Their distinctly populist chorus opener ‘Who’s In Control’, thrusts us into their moshpit at a raucous live show before they regain composure to deliver a journey that swoons, broods, kicks and breathes epic space. ‘Living Is So Easy’ already sounds like a hardened classic whilst ‘Observe The Skies’ possesses a vibrancy that irrefutably declares we are onto a new addictive page with British Sea Power.
