Known for their theatrical stage antics, Mercury Prize nominees Sea Power continue to be a vital creative force in the British music scene. Their music has been regularly compared to the likes of The Cure, Joy Division, The Pixies and Arcade Fire, although their particular style of indie-rock is laced with enough strange brilliance to make it pleasingly hard to pigeon hole.
Their return to live music post pandemic also brings the newly minted Sea Power sharing “Folly”, the latest single to be released from their forthcoming new album – Everything Was Forever released on 18th Feb 2022.
“Folly” arrives on the heels of lead single “Two Fingers”, a song that heralded a new era for the band as they said goodbye to the word “British” from their name. It was a move that drew a predictable response from certain quarters of the media – making headlines globally across TV, radio and press – but it was the strength of the band’s first new music in five years that made the loudest noise, as “Two Fingers” immediately jumped onto the BBC 6 Music A-list.
Where “Two Fingers” took in mortality, defiance, HP Lovecraft and V signs, “Folly” sings up a meandering humanity – a sleepwalking world of procrastinators with our eyes on the short-term. Guitarist Noble expands:
“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.”
Hamilton continues: “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.”
‘Sea Power Truly are one of the best live bands in the country by far’ – Louder Than War
‘They are that vital thing: a band who, had they not existed, no-one else would have thought to invent them. They couldn’t feel more current and more necessary. You should be listening to Sea Power.’ The Quietus
‘It’s clear that these aren’t just any musicians. You can’t help but feel slightly smarter by the end of the show, having listened to songs about everything from atoms to Greek mythology and while they’re always said to have well thought out shows, it’s another thing to experience it in reality.’ – Gigslutz
Moon Hooligan are a friendly bunch of Psychedelic cowboys and sonic adventurers making good old fashioned rock’n’roll. From electronic wig-outs to Neil Young-esque ballads – their music is as timeless as their tongue-in-cheek lyrics; a fun band for nice people.
Hailing from Folkestone, UK, genre defying Psych-Punk band Moon Hooligan, feature members of Eat Me, Pürple, Yes We Canada and Bad Kisser.
Having recently recently released their self titled debut album on MUMDAD Records, the band have developed a sound of their own; mixing influences from classic country, psychedelic pop and garage rock. Their debut album sees them spread their wings even further, creating a truly unique piece of work. Featuring songs of frustration, joy and isolation jostle with tongue-in-cheek takes on small-town bureaucracy and the boredom of growing older – moving between mischievous and melancholy at the drop of a hat. The music itself is a similar maelstrom of genres, lilting lullabies leading into frantic punk anthems with an energy only shared by the band’s no nonsense live shows – which have made them the talk of the South East scene.
