British Sea Power – Machineries Of Joy

British Sea Power

With a song again informed by the title of a Ray Bradbury book Brighton band British Sea Power prove that they can read good as well as write beautiful music. What they do best, and ultimately what sets them apart from their peers, is the emotional impact of their music. This is achieved through a combination of things not least Yan Wilkinson’s lump in the throat vocals and those periodic lonesome strings. Who else contemporary wise (apart from maybe Sigur Ros) could turn the tale of a rugged western Irish isle into something that can only be watched through an endless soaking of salty liquid. ‘Machineries of Joy’ is taken from 2013 BSP’s album of the same name and deals in the sort of cues that make you want to go into the world and do something positive.
