Leeds indie heavyweights English Teacher share remarkable debut EP ‘Polyawkward’ via Nice Swan Records (Sports Team, Pip Blom, FUR) and reveal video for their title-track (watch here) – described as ‘‘If Yorgos Lanthimos made a Gucci advert’’. Steeped in alt-rock sensibilities and politically-charged lyricism, ‘Polyawkward’ showcases the group’s limitless potential in full flow, spearheaded by mammoth lead track ‘Good Grief’, vivid follow-up ‘A55’ and exhilarating latest effort ‘Mental Maths’. Newly confirmed to support US indie icons Yeah Yeah Yeahs on their UK tour this summer, the band’s unstoppable rise shows no signs of easing anytime soon, with their own debut UK headline tour also lined up this month, followed by countless festival dates and autumn shows with fellow breakout stars Yard Act. Detailing their EP, enigmatic bandleader Lily Fontaine revealed: “‘Polyawkward’ is a journey of self discovery around supermarkets, along pub crawls, through lockdowns, space, time, hooks and wonk.” With a formidable 2022 already well underway, English Teacher’s status as key players amongst the emerging indie elite continues to develop at an impressive rate, with the NME 100, DIY Class of 2022 and Dork 2022 Hype List figures attracting widespread critical acclaim (The Sunday Times, NME, DIY, Dork, So Young, The Line Of Best Fit, Clash, Gigwise), a slew of impeccable live slots (supporting Sports Team, FEET, SPRINTS and TV Priest) and countless spins on the BBC Radio 1 (Jack Saunders, Gemma Bradley), BBC 6 Music (Steve Lamacq, Lauren Laverne, Huw Stephens) and KEXP airwaves. Produced by Theo Verney (TRAAMS, FEET, Lazarus Kane), English Teacher’s ‘Polyawkward’ (EP) is out now via Nice Swan Records and available on all digital platforms.
