Public Body share brand new single 'Way, No Way’' which is the third reveal from the band’s debut LP ‘Big Mess’, out on June 9th via FatCat Records.
The Brighton post punk outfit is comprised of Seb Gilmore (guitar, vocals), Thom Mills (drums), Tom Bacon (synths, backing vocals), Silke Blansjaar (bass) and Luke Vosper (guitar, backing vocals).
The new cut and previous singles 'Break From Life' and 'No Constraint' are all vividly, gleefully skewered tracks with repetitive bass-grooves, spidery guitar lines and violent synth stabs.
Detailing their latest effort, frontman Seb Gilmore explained:
"I wrote 'Way, No Way' when I was isolating with covid for the first time. I decided to rewatch Friends, and cringed out at how tragic the men are. Being stuck at home reminded me of when I was younger living in a rural area with no transport links. Back then I also stayed home and binge watched TV and as result of my lack of movement, got really fat. The song title is actually the name of Ross and Chandler’s high school band. I thought it was a killer name so robbed it".
Hotly-tipped by tastemakers such as DIY, So Young, Clash and Gigwise, as well as BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq and BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders, the five-piece make light of lethargy, neuroticism and boredom with playfully acerbic and riotously fun post-punk, and will be hitting the road this summer on a nationwide UK tour to coincide with the release of their debut album.
