Video of the Moment #2450: The Spook School

Scottish alt-pop quartet The Spook School have unveiled a brand new single as a preview of their upcoming third LP, which is due out at the beginning of next year. The album, titled ‘Could It Be Different?’, is expected to be released on the 26th of January 2018 via Alcopop! / Slumberland Records, and the first song to be released from it is called ‘Still Alive’.

The Spook School’s infectiously upbeat alt-pop sound has perhaps a slight bit more edge to it in ‘Still Alive’ than what we’ve heard from them in the past, especially in its mischievously gleeful chorus line “fuck you, I’m still alive”. The new video is deliberately kitschy and facetious, but lead singer Nye Todd describes the song itself to DIY as being “a pretty angry song, with with that anger being directed at people that carry out abusive behaviours towards others.”

The Spook School will spend most of October on tour in Europe and the UK with American alt-rock duo Diet Cig; you can find the details on their official Facebook. TGTF’s previous coverage of The Spook School, including an interview from SXSW 2016, is collected right back here.
