British Sea Power Drop A Perfect Summer Track


British Sea Power release the third track from their recently released, critically acclaimed sixth album Let The Dancers Inherit The Party (Golden Chariot / Caroline International). Listen to the new single now on the Shoot New Release Playlist!

‘Don’t Let The Sun Get In The Way’ is the perfect soundtrack to the blurry sunrises and shivering sunsets of unplanned long weekends, a subtle and beautifully poised anthem for the unprepared, all spending time “slack jawed and empty mouthed / and feeling rough”. It’s British Sea Power at their serene, soaring best.
