Brighton rockers Public Body return with their new track, their third reveal from their debut LP ‘Big Mess’ set to be released on June 9th.

Written while isolating with covid, the track is inspired by the US sitcom Friends and gorging on TV. Full of acerbic and witty lyrics, the track is full of nostalgia as it transports you back to 2003 and late night watching while late night snacking. 

A heavy guitar riff opens the track, pulling you in as sarcasm drips from every word. The short repetitive song is hypnotic in quality, the very definition of an ear-worm. With Way No Way’, the five piece band prove that there’s fun to be had in lethargy.

The post-punk band are heading out on tour later this year to coincide with the release of their debut album.
