video: "Less Than Perfect" : The Spook School

There's a heartfelt hopefulness to be found in each of The Spook School's musical endeavors and latest single "Less Than Perfect" provides a burst of sunny optimism for all those looking back, measuring how their current standards stacked up to what they once dreamed. In the quick, scrappy single from their upcoming album Could It Be Different? out 1/26 on Slumberland and Alcopop!, the band declares with zealous, "it's alright now/not what you hoped but that's ok/Teenage hopes are never less than perfect anyways." And in a video treatment as equally adorable as the song, The Spook School demonstrates why we should all be turning to this band to guide us through adulthood, adolescence and every trial that comes our way.

The band is heading out on tour here in the States soon.
