Video Premiere: Public Service Broadcasting “Turn No More”

London based Public Service Broadcasting are back at it with the video for ‘Turn No More’. It’s the third single from their new album, Every Valley, out now on Play It Again Sam. On ‘Turn No More’, PSB are joined by Manic Street Preachers’ frontman James Dean Bradfield, which is particularly thrilling as the Manics’ The Holy Bible was a formative influence on the band. J. Willgoose Esq. says of the single and how it fits into the story painted in Every Valley, “I wanted the track to have a restrained, plaintive, defiant but still angry feel, and working with James’ voice and the source material was a bit part of that, especially layering the voices towards the end. At its heart it’s a song about the people living with the aftermath – both environmental and personal – of the desolation caused both by the practices of an industry and its subsequent collapse.” The video was directed by Glashier, who has worked with Fatboy Slim, Chrissy Hynde and Juliette Lewis. Glashier was also keen to remain true to the story and explains, “This video was always going to be about the approach, portraying it right, making sure we respected the location and place, how we were portraying Ebbw Vale, why we were shooting there, what we were showing.”

PBS are hitting the road in the North America in the fall before heading back across the pond for a 12 date run starting in Cardiff.  They are closing out the UK with a show at the epic London’s Hammersmith Apollo before heading to Europe for a 20-date run in November.
