The Spook School – ‘Still Alive’ [Alcopop!]

Edinburgh scuzzy indie pop quartet The Spook School release their eagerly anticipated third album on January 26, to whet the appetite the cheeky noise merchants have released single ‘Still Alive’, which oozes quite frankly more than enough hooks and quirks to get us excited about Could It Be Different?

Mixing the distorted waves of lo-fi pop fuzz incarcerated within American counterparts Wavves and Japandroids into a sonically nostalgic inducing blast of 70s and 80s indie punk best acquainted with the likes of The Clash and The Undertones, ‘Still Alive’ epitomises a rare honesty which is thankfully as hopeful and intellectually insightful as it is brimming with sass and anger when dealing with deeply harmonious subjects such as personal identity and sexuality.
