About Film School
San Francisco-based quintet Film School earn their British passport with their utterly late 1980s indie rock sound. Formed in 2001, the group hovers around the talents of founder Krayg Burton (vocals/guitar) and Nyles Lannon (guitar/vocals), who has recorded electronic music as n.Ln and n.lannon. In 2003, Amazing Grease released a four-song EP Always Never but in 2005 the left the small label and signed with Beggars Banquet. Their self-titled debut combines shoegazer guitar swirls (Ride, Slowdive) with the melancholic vocals of the Cure and a touch of true rock drumming to give some muscle to their beautifully messy sound.
