Few bands have made us maniacally bounce whereas trapped helplessly in workplace chairs fairly like Public Body. The English band have launched a flurry of vertical singles in recent times — together with V faves “Table Manners” and “Ask Me Later” — that mix basic post-punk vitality with modern-day stresses, and are set to self-release a debut EP titled Flavour of Labour this December 3. The primary tasting of the EP arrives at the moment within the frenzied “Formica,” a spiky math-rock ripper about… nicely, shit, we’ll simply let singer Seb Gilmore clarify it.
“This tune is a few Twitter Dad,” says Gilmore, “a person who tweets monetary and life recommendation: ‘If you happen to’re not occupied with INVESTING, CRYPTO, MAKING MONEY you’re doing it fallacious.’ However how do you make investments you probably have no cash? This tune is a few poor ignorant Dad who will get tricked by a troll on Twitter, he believes every part the Twitter Dad needed to say, this included taking out loans with excessive APR and rates of interest and in flip will get his house and automotive repossessed by the financial institution.”
All too relatable.
Flavour of Labour, in the meantime, was produced by the band’s guitarist, Theo Verney, and Gilmore says this about it: “Our new EP Flavour Of Labour has a few completely different themes however it’s primarily about work. On the time I had lived in Brighton for nearly 10 years and for lots of that point I’d labored fairly horrible name centre jobs. If you depart training and your first style of full time work is working for dangerous firms who’re both benefiting from their workers or their prospects. How are you going to be ok with giving 40 hours every week of your life to one thing like that. So heck! I’ll write a tune about it or like 10.”
Fortunately, “Formica” solely clocks in at a 2:43 runtime, so you’ll be able to in all probability hear it a few times earlier than the boss messages you on Slack and asks what you’ve been doing for the previous jiffy.
