6/10 according to Ian (Norman Records staff) on Thu 27 Jun, 2013
With just 4 tracks here this is a just a taste of what’s to come, but with both the NME and BBC6 Music championing this band from the start, and with so much 80s nostalgia around at the moment, it’s no wonder that Victories At Sea are getting their foot in the door. Their influences are clear as a bell from the beginning, taking ideas from the likes of New Order, OMD and more modern acts of the genre like Editors, Friendly Fires, etc.
The first two tracks, ‘Stay Positive’ and ‘Dive’, are full-on uptempo indie/dance anthems that will probably do them a lot of favours on the festival circuit this year, while ‘No Escape’ and ‘Low’ are the token ballads of the EP.
For a band just starting out this is quite a well produced and tidy little EP, pushing all the buttons with the indie darlings of the music press and getting the kids dancing in the NME tent at Glastonbury this year.

A quick word about reviews
The following things sometimes happen:
- one of us will like or dislike a record much more than others here do
- artists get their friends to submit suspiciously favourable reviews
- artists get their marketing team to submit even more favourable reviews
- people review stuff when they're high.
If you read a review that you think is bonkers then please do submit a better one. We like to see a bit of debate about the music we stock. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
Norman Records 'mini-reviews'
We would dearly love to have the time to give every record the time it merits, but sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day.
So if you see one of our 'mini reviews', don't be offended. Don't think we can't be bothered. We're a small team and this is really just our way of saying, "Here's something worth your attention...sorry we haven't had chance to do it justice".
And, of course, feel free to submit a better review. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
