Brighton post-punk specialists Public Body share snarling new effort ‘Break From Life’, via FatCat Records. Partnering with the cult indie label for their much anticipated debut album, slated to arrive next year, ‘Break From Life’ marks the first reveal from the forthcoming record, a relentless barrage of tenacious riffage that encapsulates the group’s unbridled potential in full flow
Detailing their upcoming release, 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 backseat 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”.
A frantic buzzing track that has so much going on it’s a joy to just stop and listen too. From bursts of synths, sliding bass and melodic guitar runs, it’s melodic chaos. All held together by Seb Gilmore’s statement vocals delivered in a dead ban way that just works over all the chaos.
