The Spook School

“Less Than Perfect”

Could It Be Different?

What a great band.  This is that Scottish pop punk that Glasgow produces so well (again, is it the water or what?).  The Spook School is comprised of The Spook School are Nye Todd (guitar/vocals), Anna Cory (bass/vocals), Adam Todd (guitar/vocals) and Niall McCamley (drums).   This is not your average pop punk band.  No, these guys are insanely happy, and every now and then that is exactly what you need.  Even though they can be serious (listen to “Bad Year”), they never let the bad crush their spirits.  As they say:

Could It Be Different? is a human release—a record full of the insecurities and anxiety that arrive after self-awareness, in learning something new and potentially frightening about yourself. But at it’s heart is joy—there’s no desolation on the LP, because The Spook School
manage to find light in moments of darkness. All things glum must pass—even if hope comes only in the form of acceptance.

I love this attitude.  The Spook School will haunt you with their infectious joy.  If you love a pick-me-up, check out these guys.  Perfect winter music.
