Thereâ€™s a lot going on inside a Film School song, and thankfully it all works. From leering, pulsing guitar to brooding lyrics, the San Francisco based band have captured a shimmering, seething, and triumphant sound. With a style many say is rooted in the tradition of 80â€™s new wave Brit rock, Film Schoolâ€™s latest album Fission is more energetically lucid and accessible than their prior work spawning likeable dance beats and sweetly melancholy harmonies. At times perhaps we feel a bit lost in the cacophony, but we donâ€™t necessarily want to be found. Rather weâ€™re content to ramble amidst their river rapid sounds unsure of, yet serenely excited for, where theyâ€™ll take us next.
Fission is out now on Hi Speed Soul. Above photo by Andrew Youseff.
