If you haven’t heard Public Service Broadcasting yet, imagine ’40s BBC info films were made by your cooler older brother and you’re halfway there. They take snippets from archive soundbites (in the case of Signal 30, American road safety films,) and set them to their own music. What sounds like a gimmick is actually in reality fascinating and oddly danceable…I promise it’ll be the first time you’ve heard war propaganda that makes you want to go to the dancefloor rather than the trenches!
Their debut album, Inform-Educate-Entertain is out today (and is amazing), and they are playing the British Library (yes, really,) next month, with Hot Chip (yes, really,) DJing.
