Brighton 5-piece Public Body have released their new single ‘Break From Life’ on Fat Cat Records. It’s the first from their forthcoming album which is scheduled for release next year.
Our modern world can lead to a lack of drive, sapping our motivation to make things happen. Such is the theme for ‘Break From Life’ which is inspired by this struggle. Its quirky, fun and goodness we have all been there, particularly with social media and technology making it even easier to do very little.
Expanding on the track frontman Seb Gilmore explained:
“‘Break From Life’ is about taking a lackadaisical approach to life, nothing is really happening and you enter into an idle state, realising that you’ve run down the clock by taking a back seat the whole time and not applying yourself. This realisation hits you whilst doom scrolling on your phone, you haven’t moved position in a while and you can feel your whole body aching to be moved, but still there isn’t even motivation to do that. This song was written/recorded/mixed at home using an old 70’s Woolworths amp and 80’s Yamaha drum machine”.
With a full autumn tour plot lined up, including a support run alongside revered alt-rockers TRAAMS and appearances at Left Of The Dial, Public Body are certainly laying the groundwork ahead of what promises to be a busy 2023.
