British Sea Power are an indie rock band based in Brighton, England, although three of the band come originally from Kendal in Cumbria. Their style ranges from the sweeping, often epic, guitar pop sound to the visceral and angular. Critics have likened their sound to a variety of groups, from The Cure and Joy Division to the Pixies and Arcade Fire.
"Please Stand Up" was the second single from British Sea Power's second album Open Season. It heralded a far more mainstream, pop-oriented and produced sound for the band. Despite predictions of it being a crossover hit, it failed to grab the attention of the public and was not popular with many of the band's fans. The video was much more commercialised than the band's normal, homemade, efforts with Super 8 film but was banned by MTV in the United States for including the line A little excitement makes us wetter wetter.
