PUBLIC BODY + CAREER
Public Body: From the cradle to a 9-5 job, buried in unread emails and PMQ youtube alerts, tackling issues such as Question Time Bias and Workplace Etiquette. Public Body formed in late 2018 with a clear aim to write the perfect soundtrack to whatever you do whilst procrastinating at your day job.
Career: London band career are set to release their new EP Letting Out The Slack, having signed to Sheffield-based independent label Bingo Records (Mr Ben & the Bens, Potpourri, John Myrtle). A triumphant follow-up to 2019’s self-titled debut EP, Letting Out The Slack sees the band on form with more of their trademark tricky guitar interplay and groove-based rhythms with a frantic vocal delivery.
On the back of (pre-lockdown) gigs with Omni, Flat Worms and Corridor, career set about writing their latest collection - produced by drummer Jonny Coddington at Bottle Rocket Recordings - early this year. While ‘post-punk’ references abound, career are better than the plethora of bands around at the moment whose main schtick is that they sound a bit like rubbish versions of The Fall. Calling to mind aspects of Gang of Four, Scars and other Fast Product groups, career’s music is smart, angular, doesn’t stay around too long and makes its point with precision.
