2010 in Review #19 - The School

It's a cry we have tattooed across our our dead, dead hearts: indie pop don't ever stop and, true to form, Britain's Oxfam-rummaging kids have had a pretty good year. From the glamourous (Lucky Soul) to the positively middle aged (Tender Trap), our bedrooms have echoed to the sound of broken hearts and broken boyfriends, with side orders of xylophones or trumpets an added bonus.

Cardiff's The School are surely toppermost of the poppermost and, when we reviewed their album Loveless Unbeliever back in May, we even managed to shoehorn in a Una Stubbs reference. Cut us and we bleed polkadot.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
