New single ‘The Other Side’ confirmed for August 28th

Action-packed summer festival schedule




“This is the pinnacle of what PSB are trying to achieve, by breathing new life into dusty old relics, and it makes for truly magical, exhilarating listening” The 405
“Vividly conveys the triumph, the glamour and the tragedy of the space race”
Album Of The Week Time Out
“Rich and evocative, ‘The Race For Space’ is the sound of two young men gazing heavenwards and dreaming” Uncut
“Vibrates with poignancy and grandeur” Q
“Out of this world” The Observer 4/5

To coincide with another jam-packed summer of festival manoeuvres, Public Service Broadcasting are releasing live favourite ‘The Other Side’ on 28th August. J. Willgoose, Esq., the mastermind behind PSB, describes the track as the “most emotional moment” on the album as it delivers emotive charges of drama, heroism and wonder,

Stereogum who premiered the song wrote: “Featuring clips of the Apollo 8 launch, ‘The Other Side’ plays like an epic sci-fi score that you can dance to at times. Short PA communications from ground control in Houston are enveloped by a synth bass sequence and a simple drum pattern which fades as the Apollo 8 comes into some peril toward the middle of the track. As ground control loses communication and the urgency in the agent’s voice grows, the instrumentation returns to build to a climax with atmospheric synths, crashing cymbals, and more complex drum hits.”

The Race For Space reached #11 in the UK album charts in it’s first week – with 5 weeks in the Top 40 and 14 weeks in the Top 100 – selling over 40k records worldwide since it’s release at the end of February – in the running to be the indie hit of the year so far.
