Public Service Broadcasting - Roygbiv

Public Service Broadcasting, the brainchild of the wonderfully named J. Wilgoose, Esq, seem to be a project that wears its influences clearly on it's sleeves. It might seem rather obvious to make comparisons to Boards of Canada, giving their pechant for sampling old public information films, and the fact that they've given their latest single a title which matches the name of BOC's most famous song, "Roygbiv."

However, there is much to seperate the two, for whilst Boards of Canada gains warmth through synthetic means, the warmth that permeates throughout Public Service Broadcasting feels organic in nature. With the samples n' synths mixing with guitars and the banjo, "Roygbiv" is a song which is filled with colour, which is rather apt, as the title is an acrostic for the colours of the rainbow.

"Roygbiv" will be released on March 4th.
