New Music: Public Service Broadcasting – They Gave Me a Lamp (ft. Haiku Salut)

Taking inspiration from the title of the track and the concept of their new album, Public Service Broadcasting’s new video for They Gave Me A Lamp reflects on the history of coal mining communities in the United Kingdom. Shot underground in south-east England in a former mine, it incorporates evocative VHS footage of the Welsh Valleys mining community, provided by the South Wales Miners’ Library.

Part of their upcoming concept album Every Valley, They Gave Me A Lamp addresses the political awakening among women’s support groups at the time of the South Wales mining strike between 1984-1985 and features instrumental, post–rock trio Haiku Salut.

You can stream the track on Spotify and Every Valley is currently on pre-order and is due out on July 7th.
