English Teacher – ‘R&B’

Photo credit: Sarah Carpentieri

Released as part of Nice Swan Records (Sports Team, Pip Blom, Hotel Lux) ‘Nice Swan Introduces…’ series, English Teacher’s ‘R&B’ is a powerful and loud piece of art rock with a delicate edge as Lily Fontaine delivers words about caring for someone so much that you end up writing them R&B – even if these feelings are not quite reciprocated: ‘I’ll be making me a coffee while you spoon her back to sleep’. With a wiry guitar sound that’s equal parts Shellac and Bambara and a vocal delivery that brings to mind Shame and Dry Cleaning, English Teacher are a band you’ll want to learn from.
