The School - All I Want From You Is Everything
As a great fan of all things twee and indie-pop, it's always a delight to come across a band in the genre that I hadn't heard of before. Up until last week, I hadn't heard of Cardiff based septet, The School, who to date have released two studio albums since forming in 2007. However, after hearing their new single, "All I Want From You Is Everything", it is fair to say that I was sold immediately.
The song is three minutes of indie-pop loveliness, which wraps itself around your ears like a comfort blanket of pure aural bliss. If you want a hearty slice of dreamy, uncynical jangly pop, you can't go far wrong than this.
"All I Want From You Is Everything" is taken from The School's upcoming 3rd album "Wasting Away and Wondering", which will be released later this year. It is also the lead track of an E.P of the same name, which is available to buy now as a limited edition 7" white vinyl*.
*I just want to take the time to note that if you do decide to buy the E.P, you're likely to receive it very quickly. I ordered my copy of the E.P on Thursday afternoon, and within 18 hours it had made the crossing across the Irish Sea and landed on my doorstep, which has to be some sort of record. It would have taken me longer to download it from iTunes, although that has more to do with how unstable that service has been recently. So bravo, up with this sort of thing, etc.
