English Teacher


Having first met whilst studying in Leeds and remained in the city harnessing their craft and recording demos ever since, the four-piece, marshalled by enigmatic frontwoman Lily Fontaine (also part of Yorkshire risers Eades), have sought inspiration from social issues, literature and wit for their initial releases, whilst also benefiting from previous experience alongside legendary producer/engineer Ken Scott (The Beatles, David Bowie, Elton John).  With a slew of acclaim from the likes of NME, DIY, Dork, The Line Of Best Fit, So Young and Beats Per Minute greeting the arrival of 2021 single ‘R&B’, as well as excitement across the BBC Radio 1 (Jack Saunders, Gemma Bradley) and BBC 6 Music airwaves (Steve Lamacq, Huw Stephens), it’s fair to say English Teacher are generating substantial momentum. Upcoming live dates alongside label-mates FEET and SPRINTS, as well as Sports Team’s annual Margate Bus Trip, leave them primed to take further advantage as they cement their growing status across the indie landscape.
