English Teacher – “The World’s Biggest Paving Slab”

English Teacher are a new British post-punk band — you probably guessed that based on the band name — but they zig where some of these other groups zag. The band formed at Leeds Conservatoire in 2020, blending multiple trendy sounds that don’t normally go together. There’s some talky, angular post-punk in there, but also dream-pop and straight-ahead pop-rock. Much of the accessibility stems from singer Lily Fontaine’s voice; as Brooklyn Vegan points out, it’s a bright and melodious instrument that contrasts with the band’s sharp corners and machinelike chug.
