With the news that they’re heading out on a European tour with PWR BTTM in December, The Spook School share a video that’s all about getting home.

The Edinburgh quartet – of Anna Cory (bass and vocals), Adam Todd (guitar and vocals), Nye Todd (guitar and vocals) and Niall McCamley (drums) – have followed up the release of their critically acclaimed second album ‘Try To Be Hopeful’, as well as two songs on the ‘Continental Drift’ EP, with new tour dates (full details below).

In honour of this announcement, they’re sharing the video for ‘Gone Home’ – one of the tracks that appears on the Slumberland Records and Fortuna POP! curated ‘Continental Drift’ EP, which also features music from Tigercats, Mercury Girls and Wildhoney.

The song itself is full of their usual fizz and optimism, with the perfect blend of jangling guitars and dreamy sugar-sweet vocals. The video (watch it below) features all the band members in a death race through the countryside overlooking the city to make it back to suburbia. I won’t spoil it by revealing the winner, but some of the band members meet grisly ends along the way  – including one unusual death involving plectrums.

The Spook School are growing up and embracing their identities through their exhilarating indie-pop anthems, but this video proves that they still take their fun seriously.
