Having signed to Static Caravan in early 2013, Victories at Sea released their debut LP – Everything Forever, in October 2015. A rather exquisite blend of mournful pop, Indie guitar and that tempered electro/rock that so few get right, Victories at Sea will hopefully be enjoying some well deserved momentum from their debut. If not, there’s probably a few online avenues to start making amends; when you look at the alternative layers of mainstream mediocrity, I guess we only have ourselves to blame (the record buying public, not Birmingham Review. Although this is the first time we’ve featured them. So a little from Column A…).
But hyperbole, market trends and guilt aside, Static Caravan have probably the best pitch for this well worth while release. To find out more about Everything Forever direct from the label, or even get ya’ mitts on a copy (‘…if you even slightly fancy one’), click here
And if you need to nudge further senses, spending a cup of tea or two shifting through the Victories at Sea Youtube channel would not be a bad way to start. There’s some well thought out and executed videos to accompany many of the album tracks, with bright colours in low light, metal, steel and tales of urban decay to help bring out the flavour. Works too.
But to cherry pick one we’ve gone for ‘Up’. Have a stop, look, listen below:
