British Sea Power

sea of brass

golden chariot


Released: 30th Oct 2015


out of stock

cacophonous brass has wormed its way into some of the finest bsp classics to turn their already enormous sounding epics into the enormous scale epics they deserve.

the tracks here feel more complete somehow, like they’ve been waiting for this moment; ‘atom’ from ‘do you like rock music’ ends in one of the most impressive fanfares that turns it into a frantic, near religious experience.  “mournful brass and life-giving rock” – 4/5 mojo
