The School hail from Cardiff, wielding shimmering 60s influenced indie pop and a plethora of band members. An adorable band that combines a charming indie pop spirit with the production tricks they learnt after compulsive listens to the records by Brian Wilson and Phil Spector, fronted by Liz from The Loves. After only four gigs they have already signed to Elefant, and in September 2007 they recorded their first single, “All I Wanna Do”, produced by Ian Catt (Saint Etienne, Trembling Blue Stars, NOSOTRÄSh). A limited edition vinyl single that will give way to their debut full-length, full with sunshine-pop gems that will make you think about summer when you hear The School.
Debut single All I Wanna Do / Valentine was released on the 14th April 2008 on Elefant Records. The Let It Slip EP was released on the 16th July 2008 by the same label.
Debut album Loveless Unbeliever was released on 15th February 2010 (Elefant Records).
