Valhalla Dancehall is the band's fourth album proper, following the Mercury-nominated Do You Like Rock Music? in 2008 and the Man Of Aran soundtrack in 2009. With its title, Valhalla Dancehall invokes a wild-eyed internationalism, alluding to both the Norse mythos and Jamaican discos to the Viking heaven and Caribbean goodtimes. British Sea Power are maybe unlikely to be taking up residence in downtown Kingston, but the album title and the music it comes with are antidotes to limited horizons and parochial mindsets. Oh, and it rocks HARD. Includes "Who's in Control?".
