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.
