SONG FOR TODAY: Public Service Broadcasting - Everest

Something brand new today from a fantastic act I discovered very recently. Public Service Broadcasting are a London-based duo whose main ingredients are: 1) J. Willgoose, Esq. on guitars, banjos, other stringed instruments, samplings, electronic things; 2) Wrigglesworth on drums, pianos and other electronic things.

Taking samples from old public information films, archive footage and propaganda material, they teach the lessons of the past through the music of the future. After the success of their EP 'The War Room', PSB are moving ever upwards - this time setting their sights on the summit of 'Everest'.

The song is based on the 1953 film 'The Conquest of Everest', which told the story of Hillary, Tensing et al's successful ascent of the tallest mountain in the world, and which was directed by expedition member George Lowe.

Music Week: "This duo are bringing the past up to date whilst sounding like they belong in 2012."

Artrocker: “We had this band play at the New Blood Festival and they absolutely stole the night, hypnotising with their groovesome and accessible live breakbeats and magical shimmering electronica” - ROYGBIV Single Review 5*

Janice Long, Radio 2 - 'That's amazing, I absolutely love it... fantastic!'

Lauren Laverne, BBC6 - 'How can you not love a band with names like that... we're all for it here!'

Tom Robinson BBC6 “Absolutely sensationally brilliant”
