Getting Schooled

The School is an effervescent eight piece band (with keyboards and drums and guitars and a bass and a trumpet and 2 violins!) from the U.K. Think of them like the Belle & Sebastian/Beach Boys lovechild half-sibling of She & Him. They dropped their debut album, Loveless Unbeliever, on Tuesday…and I wants it. Yes, that’s right, junkies, finally a music post about a band that has their music available for purchase in the U.S.

Check them out:

The School, Is He Really Coming Home?

I want to be in a kick ass retro band with a trumpeter!

Best lyric:

“Is he really coming home? I’ll cross my fingers and my toes.”
