Brighton post punk/alt five-piece Public Body have returned with their catchy new single “Break From Life“.
The song is the first taste of their forthcoming album which will be out next year via FatCat Records. Get it here.
Speaking about it frontman Seb Gilmore says:
“‘‘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.”
The track captures this character emodied within the lyrics which many are connecting with right now. That constant groundhog day sweeping amongst the repeated lyrics, lifted with the dazzling instrumentation and the rhymthic hooks that deliver this enthralling essence. Quick-paced stop-starts and this bright spectrum of textures, Public Body enthrall.
