Hoping and Praying You’ll Check Out The School.

10 Feb

No other current group manages to consistently evoke the playful, girlish pop of the 1960’s than the British seven piece band The School.


Lead bubbly vocalist Liz, taps into her innermost 60’s songstress, especially on the track “Hoping and Praying,” in which she croons “and so I’m/hoping/and praying/and wishing/ that maybe he is/thinking/ and dreaming of me.”

Creamy harmonies, and jangly percussion help draw comparisons to Dusty Springfield’s albeit slower, but similar “Wishing and Hoping.”  Though the messages of both may differ,it is impossible to not connect the two songs.

Liz’s quiet and coy vocals teamed with sporadic handclaps and wistful lyrics, help cement the tune and The School itself as a band one can only hope finds its way into one’s music collection.
