Indie pop band The Spook School have signed to Alcopop! Records and have announced they are releasing their 3rd album entitled Could It Be different out 26th January 2018! To celebrate the news The Spook School have shared new single Still Alive.
Nye Todd, the band’s vocalist, has commented on the new track: “‘Still Alive’ is about no longer being in an abusive relationship. My tendency was to blame myself for not seeing the signs or leaving sooner which wasn’t helpful or fair, so I wrote this song to try and force myself out of that mind-set.
“In a way it’s a pretty angry song, with that anger being directed at people that carry out abusive behaviours towards others. I think there’s a kind of pride in it as well though, recognition that you had the strength to get through a shitty situation and to do what you needed to do, and that you don’t need to feel shame.”
