about

Only some weeks after letting you know about this amazing new band from Cardiff and their wonderful debut single, “All I wanna do”, now it’s time to confirm the commotion and clamour their songs are creating amongst the music press and 50s girl-group fans. Rough Trade compares them to Kirsty McColl and CAMERA OBSCURA, Hipersonica to BELLE & SEBASTIAN and THE BEACH BOYS, New York newspaper The Village Voice turns them into a magical daydream of THE RONETTES, weblog Parallax View makes them single of the week and Pitchfork considers them relatives to Phil Spector‘s wall of sound. And let’s not forget about the two radio sessions the band has recorded for British BBC: the first one, last February, for Bethan Elfyn‘s show on Radio 1, and their second appearance live on the BBC by mid-March, this time for Marc Riley. After such enthusiastic reactions, we cannot do other than euphorically annouce that their second single, “Let it slip”, has been released. Born from the same sessions that resulted in “All I wanna do”, and with Ian Catt (SAINT ETIENNE, TREMBLING BLUE STARS, NOSOTRÄSH, THE FIELD MICE, SHAMPOO, THE BOO RADLEYS, Kahimi Karie) on production duties, this new single holds four delightful songs: “Let it slip” (which gives the single its name), “I don’t believe in love”, “I want you back” y “Shoulder”. But the best thing about this release is the way it reaffirms our already strong belief in the single format’s grandeur, especially when a band such as THE SCHOOL is able to record four songs that could very well be earth-shaking hits.

Track Name: Let It Slip
An apology for today, an apology for a lifetime
My loveless unbeliever, he’s better than the rest

And if you ever leave me, would you go straight to her?
Or is it so easy living on your, living on your own without me baby

Your first was a masterpiece, your second was just genius
But third seemed like mirrors of what had gone before

And if you ever leave me, would you go straight to her?
Or is it so easy living on your, living on your own without me baby

(Slip, let it slip) Oo just say it (Slip, let it slip) I just wanna know
(Slip, let it slip) if you really love her – come on, come on oo boy tell me
(Slip, let it slip) Oo just say it (Slip, let it slip) I just wanna know
(Slip, let it slip) if you really love her – come on, come on oo boy tell me

And if you ever leave me, would you go straight to her?
Or is it so easy living on your, living on your own without me baby

(Slip, let it slip) Oo just say it (Slip, let it slip) I just wanna know
(Slip, let it slip) if you really love her – come on, come on oo boy tell me
(Slip, let it slip) Oo just say it (Slip, let it slip) I just wanna know
(Slip, let it slip) if you really love her – come on, come on oo boy tell me
Track Name: Shoulder
I try to ignore you and not to adore you
And shout from the skies that I wanna just hold you
But I feel afraid that you’ll think I’m just foolish
And laugh til the tears start to roll down our faces

But will you give me a shoulder to lean on?
And will you give me a shoulder to lean on?
Cos I can’t keep up my head with just two

I try to convince you she’s not that essential
It’s just cos you want undivided attention
So I grow impatient to know how you’re feeling
I won’t be content til you show me you mean it

But will you give me a shoulder to lean on?
And will you give me a shoulder to lean on?
Cos I can’t keep up my head with just two

I try to ignore you and not to adore you
And shout from the skies that I wanna just hold you

But will you give me a shoulder to lean on?
And will you give me a shoulder to lean on?
Cos I can’t keep up my head with just two
Track Name: I Want You Back
Once upon a time I thought everything would turn out fine, just like lines in books
Now I see I’m caught, caught up in a tangled web
All the things you said I bought, like a fool I’d shout it loud, “I don’t care what they say” And now it’s clear that all of it was make believe

Now and then I think, now and then I think too much about you in my sleep, about you in my sleep

And when the dreams have all come back and settled down
And the stupid nightmares hang around
With the visions of the one you’re with now
I know I tried to get you out my broken mind
And to leave the past we have behind
But it’s no use wishing now for things like that, I want you back

Well I really truly tried in the way you’d want me to, and never do you harm
I see it couldn’t last cos of what I said to you
And you knew it all along, you couldn’t have just said to me “I don’t care about it”, no you Couldn’t say “Hey girl just leave it all behind”

Well now and then I think, now and then I think too much about you in my sleep, about You in my sleep

And when the dreams have all come back and settled down
And the stupid nightmares hang around
With the visions of the one you’re with now
I know I tried to get you out my broken mind
And to leave the past we have behind
But it’s no use wishing now for things like that, I want you back
Track Name: I Don't Believe In Love
You’ve really got me this time
It’s too late to leave
And neither of us wants to go home
But as we’re here let’s face the situation
Let me explain, I don’t believe in love

Tonight there’s no-one else above us
It’s just you and me
And all the idiots hanging around
Don’t have a clue what they’re trying to prove now
I soon realise I don’t believe in love until we dance

Well I, I think you’d better stop there
You hold my hand
It makes me wanna cry
Let’s take a vow
Don’t underestimate it
We both know it’s true, we don’t believe in love

And there’s nothing you can do about it
It’s unconditional, it’s unforgivable
There’s nothing you can do to stop it
Not anymore

Well I, I think you’d better stop there
You hold my hand
It makes me wanna cry
Let’s take a vow
Don’t underestimate it
We both know it’s true, we don’t believe in love

But you’ve gotta admit
It was as good as it gets
But don’t give yourself away
I don’t need anyone, no no no no

But you’ve gotta admit
It was as good as it gets
But don’t give yourself away
I don’t need anyone, no no no no
