Music in Grenfell Tower tweet

#1 Post by Gabby » Fri 14 Jun 2019, 3:42 pm

Did we just get our first glimpse at some new PSB material in the Grenfell Tower tweet that PSB posted on their site?

The music sounds very PSB, but I can't place it in anything I've heard before, although it does sound kind of familiar.

Thoughts anyone?

It sounds horribly generic. I really hope it isn't them!

I was going to write the same.

This could be by any artist.

Sounds like Coldplay around 2005. Anyway the music's not the point.

Oh 100% agree, but odd that PSB would tweet about this unless there's some connection I'm not fully aware of. Brexit stance I "get" and not to minimize the seriousness of the Grenfell Tower fire but where is PSB's vested interest in this particular issue?

It's them i think. Who use such synth lines nowaday ? Sounds fresh and i like it even more when there's a serious/political tone.

I think the music could be them, the synth chords sound like them. I don’t think they’d use something like this to debut new music though. Unless it was a special commission just for this video.

I don’t think it’s odd that Neil’s tweeting about it. I assume Neil’s behind it. He quite often tweets political things nowadays.

Bollocks! The synths sound nothing like them. It's just a generic tune. The video isn't even their own. OP just wanted to post.

you beat me to it. that app is indispensable. I cant tell you how many times I've been in a store and heard a tune I had to know what it is and I fire up Shazam and BOOM got the answer. although there are some nail biting moments when a song is ending as you feverishly try and start shazam up and theres always that pause before it starts listening.
