Video of the Moment #2745: The Spook School

Scottish indie pop quartet The Spook School have unveiled another new video from their forthcoming LP ‘Could It Be Different?’, due out early next year on Slumberland Records / Alcopop. The new single, titled ‘Less Than Perfect’, features lead vocals from bass player Anna Cory, and though its lyrics talk about the disappointment of unmet expectations in adult life, the song itself is pure pop perfection. Its music is joyously bright and bouncy, with an infectiously catchy chorus hook: “it’s all right now / not what you hoped but that’s okay / teenage hopes are never less than perfect anyway”.

The video treatment for ‘Less Than Perfect’ finds the band members in a series of funny, awkward and altogether unexpected scenarios, as a light-hearted play on the song’s lyrical theme. As guitarist Adam Todd observes, “There’s a bit of party in our songs, no matter what the subject matter is.”

Along with the new single release, The Spook School have also announced that they will tour North America early next year with American alt-rock duo Diet Cig. You can find a full listing of The Spook School’s upcoming tour dates on their official Web site. TWatch the new video for ‘Less than Perfect’ just below.
