The debut album from Life Aquatic Band is an absurd journey that follows the (fictitious) Life Aquatic Band Police Department as they track down Sir Paul McCartney for an undisclosed crime. The Sheffield 8-piece’s audacious, meticulous dedication to this narrative concept is as daring as it is ridiculous.

Skilfully navigating genres from synth pop to indie to funk, the record features moments reminiscent of Pink Floyd, Frank Zappa, or Sufjan Stevens at his most experimental. The result is a comedic and impressive bricolage, and a delightful work of unbridled, care-free, experimental indie fusion.
