Public Body Releases New Song “Reset My Password”
- Brighton-based post-punk band Public Body, consisting of Seb Gilmore (guitar, vocals), Theo Verney (guitar, backing vocals), Tom Bacon (synth, backing vocals), Joe Steven (bass) and Thom Mills (drums), released a new song “Reset My Password” on January 10, 2022.
The song is the third single off of their upcoming EP “Flavour Of Labour”, following “Formica” and “Hard to Concentrat”.
The band recorded the song at Echo Zoo studios, produced by Theo Verney.
Seb Gilmore said of the song, “At the height of Covid, everyone was clapping for NHS staff and key workers… and that got me thinking what my place is in all this mess. I then logged onto my work computer and was advised by a popup that it was time to reset my password. So I wrote a song about how pointless and useless my job is to the world when everything felt like it was breaking and seemed apocalyptic.”
- The new EP is set to be released on March 4, 2022. He said of the EP, “Our new EP 'Flavour Of Labour' has a couple of different themes but it's mainly about work. At the time I had lived in Brighton for almost 10 years and for a lot of that time I'd worked pretty terrible call centre jobs. When you leave education and your first taste of full time work is working for bad companies who are either taking advantage of their employees or their customers. How can you feel good about giving 40 hours a week of your life to something like that. So heck! I'll write a song about it or like 10.”
