Scottish Pop Song of the Day #37

The Spook School – History (2011)

Well this is ace. The Spook School are a relatively new Edinburgh four-piece, not that you’d know it on the evidence of History: its cerebral indie power-pop already sounds vintage in all the right senses – jangly guitars, wiry axe-mastery, Postcard-recollecting vocals and existential lyrics about John Cleese, magic trees, gender confusion and Jaffa Cakes.

History and its equally impressive (and totally different) b-side Hallam, are free for download here – grab it with both hands while you can, and catch The Spook School in the flesh at your earliest convenience. Exciting, indeed.
