Public Service Broadcasting have confirmed plans for their new EP 'White Star Liner'.
It's been a busy summer for the band, playing a stunning set at Green Man and completing a Titanic themed commissioned for BBC's Biggest Ever Weekend.
Indeed, this latter project prompted their latest release – 'White Star Liner' was of course the name of the company that managed the Titanic's ill-fated maiden journey.
A four track EP, the material was debuted during their Titanic themed show in Belfast, and will be released Play It Again Sam on October 26th, with a vinyl drop to follow on December 7th.
J. Willgoose, Esq. of Public Service Broadcasting says: “I thought it was an interesting challenge to tell the story of the ship's construction as part of Belfast's proud industrial history, the spirit of optimism of the pre-war age that she represented, and then an abstract and, I hope, respectful depiction of both the sinking of the ship (represented by the repeated Morse code distress call, C – Q – D) and the discovery of the wreck in 1985.”
Title track 'White Star Liner' is online now, and it's surging energy recalls the ship's proud bow cutting through Atlantic waves; interspersed with clipped vowel spoken word, it's sheer Public Service Broadcasting.
