Everything Was Forever is Sea Power's (formerly British Sea Power) first new album in five years. Their music has won them some remarkable admirers: Lou Reed, David Bowie and London's National Maritime Museum. Indeed, the BSP fanbase now includes Doctor Who, Harry Potter and Sherlock Holmes. Peter Capaldi is a confirmed BSP fan. "A band of stark originality," he wrote in his foreword for the reissue of the band's 2003 debut album, The Decline Of British Sea Power, "BSP's songs bring you the bite of the wind, the fury of the sea, and music that is simply exhilarating." Daniel Radcliffe has talked in detail about his plan to get a BSP tattoo (featuring the 2002 T-shirt slogan "Bravery Already Exists"). Benedict Cumberbatch is also an admirer of the band.
Supported by their ever-loyal fans who have very generously crowd funded the making of their seventh studio album, BSP were able to get through the ravages of Covid.
Fifteen years on from their first concert, British Sea Power continue to make bold, galvanizing, idiosyncratic marks on the world. Race horses and massive ocean-going yachts have been named after the band. London's National Maritime Museum recently opened a new £35m exhibition wing. Visitors are greeted by huge, sculpted quotations from Shakespeare and Coleridge and a lyric from British Sea Power.
Even if you've missed the boat over the past 20 years, Everything Was Forever is an open invitation to hop onboard.
...2022's Everything Was Forever is a powerfully effective summation of what they do best: making music that that's long on thunder and atmospherics, and built on a melodic foundation of widescreen grandeur. Everything Was Forever has all of that, and it also rocks...Sea Power have been one of the most interesting U.K. acts to emerge since the dawn of the new millennium, and Everything Was Forever not only shows they're still in strong form, it's as bold and inspired as their best work. If you're going to make an album to kick off your new brand, this is just the way to do it.
