Victories At Sea In Memory Of
CD. Static Caravan
6/10 Ian Staff review, 27 June 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.

We're not your normal record shop...
Please note that whilst we're always happy to see you, we are not a normal record shop where you can come and browse the stacks.
There are no stacks.
Nope, instead we are basically a kind of crap lo-fi Argos for vinyl records. So, instead of trudging all the way to sunny Holbeck in anticipation of being able to flick through shelf after shelf of releases, please place your orders online first and use our 'In-store collect' option in the checkout.

Related artist data is provided by Spotify. Why?
- They are much, much better at writing clever algorithms than us.
- They have much, much more data to set their algorithms on.
We think this is a better option than stinking up your browsing experience here on Norman Records with a crummy implementation of our own. (We only wish we were this clever: Artist Explorer.)
Spotify generate recommendations based on the listening patterns of their massive audience, so they are generally pretty good. The data does throw up some odd combinations though. So, if you do spot anything daft have a little chuckle at their robots but please don't contact us about it. There is nowt we can do.
