#545 School – SoLong

There’s nothing revolutionary about ‘SoLong’ by School, except perhaps the band’s unusual approach to spacing. It is, however, understatedly and insistently lovely, and that’s good enough for us. If anything it’s a touch old-fashioned, with a kind of 90s indie charm, but that makes it all the better in our book. Alice Boteus, the singer of the Gothenburg five-piece, wrote the lyrics on the back of a receipt on her way home from IKEA, making it surely the best thing ever to come out of a trip to that particular furniture store.
