I once locked an English Teacher in their book cupboard once, still feel a bit bad about that, they were probably about 28, underpaid and could really have done without that. 'This Could Be Texas' is the debut from... English Teacher, they're from Leeds and are a real exciting indie band who bring together a propulsive and expansive post punk with spoken word with just some of that good old fashioned modern indie folk. I'll learn to treasure this band like I should've my old teacher who was just trying to share the joy of literature.
Leeds indie frontrunners English Teacher announce debut LP ‘This Could Be Texas’. Preceded by initial LP reveals ‘The World’s Biggest Paving Slab’, ‘Nearly Daffodils’ and ‘Mastermind Specialism’, which were all A-listed on the BBC 6 Music playlist, English Teacher’s remarkable ascent continues to reach new levels, having completed sold-out debut UK and US headline runs last autumn, following their thrilling debut appearance on Later With...Jools Holland. Announced as Independent Venue Week Artist Ambassador for 2024. Lead singer Lily Fontaine explains, “I want this album to feel like you’ve gone to space, and it turns out its almost identical to Doncaster. It’s about in-betweens, it’s about home, and it’s about Desire Paths." In several songs, Fontaine reflects on growing up as a mixed-race individual in a place, she says, “where many didn’t have any tolerance towards people who are different” in a post-Brexit landscape.
The debut album by Leeds frontrunners ‘This Could Be Texas’ will be released on 12th April 2023.
