Sea Power have dropped a new single.

Following Two Fingers, Folly marks the latest song from the group formerly known as British Sea Power, as well as the second preview of their new album. 

Offering up atmospherics textures, a driving drum beat, and ethereal vocals, the track is explained further by guitarist Martin Noble, who commented:

"Folly is in the tradition of singalong Sea Power apocalyptic anthems – everyone ambling down the road to a multitude of catastrophes. Party on! You might find yourself standing up on the South Downs, up on the fells or the dales, looking down at the world, a world where we seem to avoid the decisions and changes to stop the rot. It’s all folly, but in this case set to some pretty life-affirming music – good stuff underpinning the donut vibes and maybe making you think it’s not all over, not quite, not yet."

Vocalist and guitarist Neil Hamilton Wilkinson added: "I was thinking of things like greedy overlords playing fart games on the lawns of their great dominions, the enclosure of common lands, bodies, minds, the fantastical gusto of doom and frivolity that feeds the world, me included. I was feeling all on edge, paranoid like the old vampire in Nosferatu when I got into this song."

'Everything Was Forever', the follow-up to 2017's 'Let The Dancers Inherit The Party', is due out on February 11 via their own label Golden Chariot.

The band have a run of rescheduled UK shows in the diary for later in October, followed by further dates in spring 2022. Tickets are on sale now.
