Famed for their live performances - which often include fake foliage, birds, and a 10-foot-tall stuffed bear - British Sea Power started collecting fans with a series of nightly shows called "Club Sea Power" in their hometown of Brighton, UK. The sextet have come a long way since then, producing three studio albums and the soundtrack to a 1934 documentary about the Aran Islands.

The band's grandiose guitar pop and historically relevant lyrics have earned them multiple awards and widespread critical acclaim. Their latest record, Valhalla Dancehall, was produced at a farmhouse in the English countryside, where, during the recording process, British Sea Power made their own nine-hole golf course.

Songs played: "Who's in Control," "Living Is So Easy" and "Mongk."
