British Sea Power
I am currently listening to British Sea Power's latest album. As well as being a great band they sing about topics with nautical and geographical themes as diverse as the Larsen B ice shelf and the floods at Canvey Island being a herald of climate change's destruction.
The sleeve notes starts as follows: "There's hardly anything more impressive than a great sheet of water which is motionless and soundless. At such rare moments at sea it is almost frightening - and then when the moon comes up, then it is truly a shining level".
