English Teacher – R & B

English Teacher by Denmarc Creary

Leeds, UK-based English Teacher – comprised of Lily Fontaine (vocals, rhythm guitar, synth), Douglas Frost (drums, piano, vocals), Nicholas Eden (bass) and Lewis Whiting (lead guitar). Last month the band announced their highly-anticipated debut album, This Could Be Texas, will be released April 12th via Island Records, and today, they present an intoxicating new single/video “R&B.”

Produced and mixed by Marta Salogni (black midi, Depeche Mode, Björk), This Could Be Texas bursts with intricate, math-rock leanings and meticulously crafted melodies with lyrics that explore far-ranging themes including social issues, struggling to belong, mental health and science fiction.

Of the video directed by Sarah Oglesby and Sodium Films, the group revealed: “This is an ode to 2021’s original ‘R&B’ video and to Douglas snogging himself. It’s an ode to self-love and an ode to not putting up with bullshit. It’s an ode to the chaos of the calm and the calm of the chaos. It’s an ode to the greatest TV show of all time – The Shivering Truth. Here’s to theatre and here’s to behind the scenes. We fight. We break up. We kiss. We make up.”
