***The Leeds show – part of the Leeds International Film Festival - sees the band revisit the collaboration they put on earlier this year with Polish festival Kinoteka. The show was performed to a sold-out crowd at the London Barbican. The show sees British Sea Power playing a specially written score for a series of classic Polish animations handpicked by the band. According to the Central and Eastern European Review, the gig helped showcase the country’s “diverse aesthetics… yet more proof of the richness of Polish cultural tradition.”
British Sea Power released their fifth album Let The Dancer’s Inherit The Party earlier this year. Some of the praise for the record:
“Sharp songwriting combines with an elemental, eerie production… their most direct in years” The Guardian 4/5
“The sound of a band reinvigorated” DIY, 4/5
“Defiantly positive” Q, 4/5
“Their best album for years… here be poetry” Mojo, 4/5
