Artist Info

The School

The SchoolPowered by Audioscrobbler™There is more than one artist called The School

1. The School are from Cardiff, wielding shimmering 60s influenced pop and a plethora of band members.

2. The School from Trondheim, Norway playing Indie Rock with Post-Punk influences

#1: The School are a pop band from Cardiff, Wales, UK. They formed in late 2007 and signed to legendary Spanish label Elefant Records after playing just 4 shows. Their debut album 'Loveless Unbeliever' was released in 2010, produced by Ian Catt (Saint Etienne, Trembling Blue Stars, NOSOTRÄSH), full of sunshine-pop gems.

The album appeared in over 70 'Best of 2010' lists, it was 6Music's Album of the Day, Rough Trade's Album of the Week and Radio Nowhere's Album of the Year. BBC Radio Wales's Adam Walton declared it his 'favourite Welsh pop album of all time', and Molly Ringwald is also a fan. The band have just finished recording album number two, due for release in early 2012.

"a swaying, winsome tune with some of the Phil Spector lushness of Lucky Soul, the Belle & Sebastian-style modesty of Camera Obscura, and the airy, girl-group vocals of both" - Pitchfork

"Proper girly pop..a delightfully danceable album that could have proudly sat in the racks of a Carnaby Street record shop of yore.. there's a stronger Spector/Shangri-Las fixation to The School's sound.. The smalltown uncertainty of Sandie Shaw rears its head on "Is He Really Coming Home?", while there's a Motown-lite spin to "Can't Understand" and bubblegum doo-wop bounce of "Hoping and Praying" - Uncut, 4/5


#2: The School was formed in one of Norway’s most musically fertile breeding grounds, the city of Trondheim, in the spring of 2004. The band made their mark within a year on the thriving and vibrant live circuit – quickly building a reputation for their catchy riffs and in-your-face attitude.
The bands line up consists of three childhood friends from the west coast and two from the northern parts – founded by singer/songwriter Stig Aarskog, who first recruited the twin brothers Karl-Martin (Bass) and Thor-Inge Hoddevik (guitars) to play in the band. Shortly thereafter they drafted in Andreas Elvenes (keyboards/backing vocals) and finally Puppy (drums). Read more on Last.fm.
