British Sea Power - The Decline Of British Sea Power (Rough Trade)
The Brighton-based quartet share a musical kinship with The Coral. Not in sound, but in spirit. Refusing to be browbeaten onto a bandwagon, their music harks back to the dark, elaborate swoons of Joy Division, but is imbued with a challenging, guitar-crashing brightness all of their own. Branded by singer Yanís quavering, feral yelp, theirs is sensuous music - dense with emotion thatís both distraught and uplifting. This is a spectacular debut, brimming with intelligence, individuality and tireless imagination. Witness the rise of British Sea Power. Alexia Loundras 30 May 03

British Sea Power - The Decline Of British Sea Power, released 02 June 03 by Rough Trade.
