Stream: Public Service Broadcasting shine a light with “They Gave Me A Lamp”

They Gave Me a LampFollowing cybernetic success with single "Progress", Public Service Broadcasting treat us to another splice of mesmerising audio-historical techno-pop. Their new single "They Gave Me A Lamp" is out now and available to stream below.

The single is taken from their third album Every Valley, due for release on 7th July 2017. It features post-rock trio Haiku Salut. The single focuses on the political awakening of women at the time of the South Wales miners’ strike of 1984-1985. It once again pulls off that purely Public Service Broadcasting feat of combining heartfelt real life stories of historical importance and an infectious techno track without losing the significance or enjoyment of either. It somehow manages to be sentimental without being twee, bold without being impudent.

It was hard to see how Public Service Broadcasting would follow the meteoric success of their previous two albums, particularly The Race For Space, a seminal album but if “Progress” and “They Gave Me A Lamp” is anything to go by then Every Valley is shaping up to be another cult classic.

Public Service Broadcasting will be touring the new album in November.

November – 13th @ Great Hall, Cardiff // 14th @ UEA, Norwich // 16th @ Academy, Manchester // 17th @ Boiler Shop, Newcastle // 18th @ Barrowland, Glasgow // 19th O2 Academy, Leeds // 20th @ Warwick Arts Centre, Coventry // 21st @ Rock City, Nottingham // 23rd @ Colston Hall, Bristol // 24th @ Pyramids Centre, Portsmouth // 25th @ De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill // 26th @ Eventim Apollo, London
