PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING – SINGLE REVIEW

Public Service Broadcasting – They Gave Me A Lamp (Test Card Recordings) 
Public Service Broadcasting - They Gave Me A Lamp


Release Date: Out Now

There’s something joyously hopeful, optimistic and positive about this tune which, lets’ face it, the world needs in abundance right now. The peerless Public Service Broadcasting are back with a new single ahead of a new album and ‘They Gave Me A Lamp’ speaks to that park of you that wakes up one morning and decides to stop suffering a broken heart. The circular guitar riff and emerging horns are all about that sunrise after the darkest dawn and the spoken word sample from a woman involved in action during the 80s miners strikes on Wales is inspiring but understated in that way only the Welsh do brilliantly. If like many of us, like me, you’re struggling to breath in the current air of despair, corruption, injustice and hate then I highly recommend strapping this one on for a listen and taking a long, deep breath. It will get better.
