Public Service Broadcasting unveil new single 'Der Rhythmus Der Maschinen'

With their eagerly-awaited new album now just a couple of days away, Public Service Broadcasting have now unveiled the final cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Der Rhythmus Der Maschinen' sees them team up with Bad Seeds and Einstürzende Neubauten veteran Blixa Bargeld for the release, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Lichtspiel III: Symphonie Diagonale', 'Blue Heaven' and 'People, Let's Dance' in previewing their new LP 'Blue Magic', which is out this Friday 24th September via Play It Again Sam.

Speaking about the new offering, the band's J. Willgoose, Esq. said, “Der Rhythmus der Maschinen”, “It’s a kind of reinterpretation of the first few minutes of Fritz Lang’s Berlin-made visionary science fiction film, Metropolis, using samples from Ruttmann's 1930 audio film 'Wochenende' cut to a heavy, industrial soundtrack. Blixa Bargeld delivers a half-spoken monologue over the outro about the city as a machine - it's a bit mad (the whole song is) but I like it. The song is about the more physical, industrial influence on the city, be it the railway or heavy industry and manufacturing that saw it boom in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.”

While the video's director Jordan Martin added, “Using the Prelinger Archives we sourced footage from the era. You'll see things from Ruttmann's Berlin: Symphony of a Great City and Master Hands from the Jam Handy Organisation. A really fun edit, creating a driving force to the track, using images of huge and intricate macro machinery from the industrial revolution."
