Enjoying increasing exposure from the likes of the NME, Clash and The Guardian, Birmingham’s Victories At Sea step out of the concrete jungle with their debut album Everything Forever. Adding indie rock swagger to their love for New Order electronics it’s a confident blend of 80’s and 00’s for the teens. Out on limited vinyl LP from Static Caravan.

9/10 Justin Customer review, 30th October 2015
I've been waiting for this album for a long long time after seeing them at Shopkeepers in 2013 and am most definitely not disappointed! The opening song Bloom sets the bar with a great anthemic pulsing beat, it's lyrically uplifting and reassuring and sets the mood of the record. Florentine is a quick kick into dance floor groove before the Depeche Mode meets NIN canon of UP. The record hits it's stride at On Your Own (a sure single?) before journeying onward.
There's a lot to discover on this record, the instrumental parts linking songs in the second half, the (my fav) pure 80's pop of Future Gold and depth of Sirens, I've been listening to it all day, my only complaint being the absence of even more songs, 2 years on since the EP though I'm happy this record finally landed.
