video: "Body" - The Spook School
The Spook School continues to prove the vital urgency of their music in single "Body". It's the latest single from the group's forthcoming album Could It Be Different out 1/26 and in a brief, three minutes the quartet tackles body dysmorphic disorder and the discomfort that can come in being in your own skin. But, like all of Spook School's best singles, "Body" packs important messages in raucous, engaging garage pop. The calamity of instrumentals and the unkempt nature of their noise makes for an instantly memorable listen. It's an energized, fuzzy glimpse at the hardships of learning to love and accept yourself. There's a relatable nature to their melodies — including the ease of hiding within yourself and the struggle to be okay. Too often our news is grim and the music we turn to should lift us up, and provide a sense of comfort and The Spook School does that time and time again. "Body" is a reminder that one is never alone and that just around this feeling of darkness is a better day.
