  • English Teacher Premieres New Song “Song About Love” on BBC Radio 1

  • Leeds-based indie post-punk band English Teacher, consisting of Lily Fontaine (vocals/rhythm guitar), Douglas Frost (drums), Nicholas Eden (bass) and Lewis Whiting (lead guitar), premiered a new song “Song About Love” on BBC Radio 1's Future Artists with Jack Saunders.

    The song is the first music since the 2022 EP “Polyawkward”.
    The track was written by Lily Fontaine, Douglas Frost, Nicholas Eden and Lewis Whiting. Producer by Dan Carey.
    The accompanying animated music video was directed by Lily Fontaine.
    Lily Fontaine said of the song, “It’s a pop song about doing chores instead of doing someone else, and how even songs with social or political themes that analyse contemporary discourse, rather than lyricism about tired themes like romantic love, still come from a place of love, or lack thereof.”
  • She continued, “The final record is one of the first takes we did in the studio, thanks to the atmosphere Dan and Speedy create to work in. It was a relief to finally get into the room and discuss our music and music in general; what came out the other end certainly couldn’t have happened in another space, with another producer or on another day.”
    Also the band social media, “‘Song About Love’ isn’t really about love or songs, it’s about you. It’s about looking after yourself first. It’s a theme that inspired our single R&B which we wrote hoping to send to a Dan Carey hoping he would maybe even just open the soundcloud link. But yes it’s also about love and songs, how every topic related to love in some way. If you don’t love the song we at least hope it provoked disgust because disgust comes from loving things a lot.”
