Public Body Announce Debut LP 'Big Mess', Stream "No Constraint"

Brighton post punk/alt band Public Body have announced the release of their debut full-length album ‘Big Mess‘.

The 10-track record will be out on June 9 through FatCat Records, featuring previous single “Break From Life” and the new song “No Constraint“. Pre-order your copy here.

Formed in Brighton with a clear aim to write the perfect soundtrack to whatever you do whilst procrastinating at your day job, Public Body pick apart the mundanity of daily life and all its annoyances in irresistible fashion.

Commenting on the record, the band’s Seb Gilmore says: “Lyrically this album is self deprecating which is a tad embarrassing because I should probably just sort my life out rather than write a 10-song album about it!. Anyway, the record was recorded using a 70’s Woolworths guitar amp and an old Yamaha drum machine. Tone is in the fingers dude.”

On he new single, he says:

This song is about a dream I had, where my friend Ted told me he didn’t want to be my friend anymore because I was getting too drunk and making a fool of myself. When I told him about this dream he told me that maybe I shouldn’t drink so much because I do make a fool of myself. I’ve been in the shame cube ever since.”
