Public Service Broadcasting – Night Mail

Night Mail

Public Service Broadcasting roll into the autumn following a summer spent wooing festival crowds the length and breadth of the country with their spectacular live transmissions.

As the nights draw in J. Willgoose, Esq. and drumming companion Wrigglesworth are set to release Night Mail, the next single to be lifted from the brilliant debut long player Inform-Educate-Perform, and embark on another set of transmissions throughout November.

‘Night Mail’ takes as its subject matter from the eponymous film of 1936, a pioneering documentary film produced by the General Post Office and the Royal Mail Group. Setting the original words of the documentary – including the much loved Night Mail poem – to a song that evokes the rhythm, speed and excitement of the railway in the era of the steam train, PSB breathe a new lease of life into a gem of a film.

Full of atmosphere that is both moody and uplifting the track combines a laid back melodic breakbeat with a hypnotic piano hook, the ultra modern minimal techno in stark contrast to the vintage narration of the mail train making its way through a by-gone time, perfectly encapsulating what PSB are about.

Night Mail will be available from 4th November on Test Card Recordings and the debut album is out now from all the usual outlets.
