- I'll Be Honest / Will You Always Be My Friend? by The Spook School
8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 25 September 2013
I haven’t heard the Spook School before but I have to admit this record doesn’t sound quite as spooky as I had hoped. It’s actually some kind of ramshackle C86ish indie pop with a bit of a twee thing going on. There’s a lady singing in a broad Scottish accent, some “aah-ah” backing vocals and some bouncy jangle-fuzz backing. Think somewhere between Evans the Death and Helen Love and you’re not a hundred miles off, but that comparison may make it sound more annoying than it really is, this is quite charming actually.
On the other side is ‘Will You Always Be My Friend?’, where they switch to a boy singer and it weirdly kind of reminds me of the Bis songs where the boys sang mixed with Leeds indie legends The Seven Inches. Fortuna Pop seem to have really been on the money lately, lots of bands who seem like they could be too twee but then get away with it simply by being very good. If you’re into their recent triumphs like Evans the Death, Allo Darlin’ and Joanna Gruesome there’s a good chance you’ll enjoy this too!
