Oi! Stop what you’re doing. School Disco is back with two new singles, Caught in Space and Shooting in the Dark, and we’re super excited to premiere these tunes on IMN.
Based in Brighton.

“Sorry, I need to interrupt, I have a great fact about Brighton. Most people don’t know that when the Swedish band ABBA won the Eurovision song contest with Waterloo in 1974, it was in Brighton. The event was held at the Brighton Dome concert hall, still a popular arts venue today.”
Thank you for that interesting detail about ABBA, but we’re here to talk about School Disco. Shut the door behind you. Where was I? Oh yes, the three-piece like to sit in living rooms surrounded with plants and think about music.
I recently met up with Rory Lethbridge (lead singer and guitarist) in a greenhouse in his mate’s backyard in London. This is what he had to say about their new singles: “Caught in Space is an intergalactic jam that will throw you into the band’s love for science fiction. It’s also an angry assault on the human race and how we are in denial about climate change and how this will eventually lead to our demise. Shooting in the Dark is less serious. Is that a conifer? One second.”
While Rory’s busy, I’ll give you my opinion of the songs. I know you’re dying to hear my thoughts. Caught in Space kicks, punches and spits at its audience with dirty guitar licks, heavy drum assaults and bipolar vocals. This is a record that has depth. I had to listen to it throughout the day to understand its motives. Is it going to give this reviewer a heart attack? Probably! That’s because I mosh every time I hear it. My little legs and arms dance to the aggressive sounds emitted by School Disco; it’s a beautiful sight. Wouldn’t you agree, Frank? Why are you still here? Go away.
While Caught in Space is all up in your face, Shooting in the Dark is passing you a doobie. This song would take acid at Glastonbury and hug everyone while they’re trying to watch Kylie Minogue dance on the main stage. SIND is a free spirit, has dreds and loves a good incense stick. What I love about this record are Lethbridge’s vocals; they’re so clean, they don’t need a shower or a bubble bath.
School Disco is a band I really love and think will go very far. Well, to the local B&Q and Dobbies anyway. I jest. Seriously, you should follow these guys on all their social media accounts, buy their music and merchandise, and generally support this upcoming band. Before you leave us to stalk these lovely boys, listen to Caught in Space and Shooting in the Dark below. Cheers.
