MAN OF ARAN

BRITISH SEA POWER

Called 'the best band in Britain' by The Sunday Times, British Sea Power provide the live soundtrack to Robert J Flaherty's 1934 pseudo-documentary Man of Aran.

Depicting life on the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland, the film follows characters struggling against the harsh conditions of a rugged landscape – fishing off high cliffs, farming potatoes in bare soil and hunting for sharks to get liver oil for the primitive lamps. Filled with drama, yet brilliantly ridiculous in its fabrications, the film comes alive with British Sea Power's instrumental rock and sweeping melodies.

British Sea Power also play at Beck's Music Box




The songs vary between dreamy, near-acoustic reveries and dramatic electronic epics, reflecting a film that drifts between stagey visions of a lost way of life and rawer scenes of unforgiving, awesome nature. BBC  MORE >
