THE SPOOK SCHOOL BRING THE FESTIVE CHEER ON ‘SOMEONE TO SPEND CHRISTMAS WITH’

Glasgow band The Spook School are making waves in the indiepop scene and beyond. Their honest lyrics about identity and sexuality coupled with their passionate punk rock have won them a devoted and loyal fanbase. This led to them headlining Indietracks Festival and a UK tour with Diet Cig. Following their brilliant albums Dress Up and Try to Be Hopeful, in which the band has grown more confident with each release, Alcopop! Records will release their third album Could It Be Different? On the 26th January. ‘Still Alive’ and ‘Less Than Perfect’, the two teasers from the album, are joyous indie pop bangers which capture their live energy perfectly. To coincide with the album’s release, the band are playing a show at Glasgow’s ABC, and a release show with Shopping. The band are also heading on a North American Tour with Diet Cig, Lala Lala, and Great Grandpa.
The Spook School have released a Christmas single, ‘Someone to Spend Christmas With’ along with a 2018 calendar featuring shots of drummer Niall McCamley. The track itself is a glorious ray of sunshine featuring a soaring synth that dominates the track while the instruments feel louder, enhancing the impact. Lyrically, it is about finding out how to manage a relationship on your own terms in a society that offers conflicting advice on the correct way to do it. The harmonies and C86-style production leave you with a warm, festive feeling, making this a perfect addition to your Christmas playlists.
Niall McCamley Calendar
‘Someone to Spend Christmas With’ is out on 15th December and available to listen here.
