English Teacher “The World’s Biggest Paving Slab”

Leeds indie/post punk band English Teacher have dropped a new version of their track “The World’s Biggest Paving Slab“.

The song, produced by Marta Salgoni (Bjork, Black Midi, Animal Collective), is out now through via Island Records an follows their single “Song About Love” released earlier this year. Buy it here.

Bandleader Lily Fontaine explains: “I wrote and recorded the demo in my bedroom in one day, during my final year of university in 2018. Moving to a city for university forced me to reflect on how my experience of growing up in and around Pendle, how witnessing the social, economic and political issues that exist around there in juxtaposition with the beauty of the landscape and the characters that live within in it, has shaped me into the artist and person that I am. These semi-rural stories leak into most of my writing; in particular, this song tackles delusions of grandeur and inferiority from the perspective of a small town’s local celebrities. It’s split into two halves.”

Take a listen below.

The band have also announced their Autumn UK tour, full dates below.
