PREMIERE: Film School Dives Into a Field of Wah in the New Track “Give Up”
The LA-via-SF-via-NY post-punk group has reunited their classic lineup for the first time in a decade to release June, a new EP which is out February 12.
It’s been a long road for Film School, the dirty and jangly post-punk group that dates back to the late 1990s, when it was originally a solo project for Krayg Burton. By 2006, the band had settled into a nice rhythm—when they released their self-titled sophomore album—but soon after they fractured and went on to become something new again. Since that time, Film School has endured and developed, but for their latest, the Los Angeles band is returning to their San Francisco roots.
Forthcoming is the June EP, a four-song release that reunites the lineup that created Film School ten years after it originally came out. We were already treated with the opener “City Lights,” and now we have pleasure to premiere “Give Up,” a pulsating psych piece of equal parts beauty and despair.
You can hear that track, as well as check out the EP info and the band’s upcoming California tour dates, below.
