Ever since I saw Public Service Broadcasting perform at last year’s Glastonbury, I’ve always been interested in their new style of music. For those who don’t know, the alternative band combine archive footage with creative instrumentals to make catchy songs. When I saw their set in Glastonbury, there was one song which stuck out – Go! Well, I rediscovered the song recently and so it is today’s Musical Discovery.
Taken from their album, The Race for Space, this track contains sound bites from the 1969 moon landing. Aside from the catchy lyrics and chorus standing out in this song, it is the fast-paced instrumental which also brings this song to life. With a driving, complex drum beat mixing with sharp guitar riffs and atmospheric electronic melodies, this track is a stand-out track on the album which captures the magic of space exploration.
If you liked this, you may also like their epic funk jam, Gargarin. Personally, it’s a great song to dance to but not something I’d listen to for leisure.
