The Spook School - Speak When You're Spoken To
The Spook School are a band from Edinburgh who like to have a good time whilst playing noisy pop music. Do they belong on a punk blog? Hell yeah, if great bands like Martha, Spoonboy, No Ditching etc belong on here then The Spook School's jangle pop gems will fit in nicely.
Influenced by the likes of David Bowie, The Buzzcocks, The Shop Assistants etc, they formed in 2012 and comprise of brothers Nye and Adam Todd plus Anna Cory and Niall McCamley.
Their debut album, Dress Up, was released in 2013 on Fortuna POP! and is an exploration of gender, sexuality and queer issues whilst the follow up, Try To Be Hopeful came out last year. You can check them out, along with their various singles, here : https://thespookschool.bandcamp.com/
With a UK tour booked for the summer, as well as a return visit to the USA (following their recent appearance at Austin, Texas' SXSW), their star will only continue to rise. This is their latest video, it's for their song Speak When You're Spoken To........
