Film School Air New Single/Video "Defending Ruins"

Los Angeles shoegaze/psych/alt band Film School have aired their new single “Defending Ruins“, and its accompanying music video.

The track features on their seventh studio album ‘Field‘, our current Album of the Week, out today, August 26 via Felte Records. Grab your copy here.

According to the press, Field is enveloped by themes of regret, disconnection and frustration but with the space to understand that these feelings are a natural part of the struggle between reconciling the inner and outer self.

Commenting on the track, they said: “‘Defending Ruins’ is about people and societies getting stuck in their histories and unable to move forward.”

Film School “Defending Ruins” Lyrics:

I remember every day you said it’d come
I remember every day you’d want it done
can sorta see the way it made sense to you
You better make it right or you’d fucking walk

I remember every day it made sense to you
Everything you said made sense to you

Now I don’t even care if this misses the mark
I lived another day to break the union apart

Defending the ruins, defending remains
Defending the ruins, defending remains
