Public Service Broadcasting share “They Gave Me A Lamp” from new LP, announce tour


Public Service Broadcasting have shared “They Gave Me A Lamp,” featuring UK experimental trio Haiku Salut, from their new album, Every Valley. The album is about the South Wales coal industry, intertwining samples of old interviews of miners and their families with PSB’s brand of post-rock. Says PSB’s J. Willgoose, Esq:

When I was doing the research for this album, one of the stories that leapt out at me most obviously was of the role of women’s support groups in the strike. It seemed like a genuine political awakening for a whole generation of women, who suddenly came to realize both their potential and the power they had to shape the society they were part of; I really wanted to try to do their movement justice. Getting Haiku Salut on board, as well as samples of women talking about their role in the strike, was another key factor for me in putting this song together”

Listen to the song below. Every Valley is out July 7 via Play it Again Sam.

Public Service Broadcasting will be taking their multimedia show on the road in September, playing Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 13. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, May 19 at 10 AM with an AmEx presale beginning Wednesday (5/17) at noon. All dates are listed below.
