A CLASSIC EDUCATION
A trio based in Bolgna, Italy, A Classic Education (Jonathan Clancy, Paul Pieretto & Luca Mazzieri) are an extremely young and promising band. In fact with only a three song demo under their belt they've already opened for Modest Mouse (June 4th) and that's not too shabby. Band member Jonathon Clancy (a fellow Canadian) tells me that they're working on a 7" and a record and they've also been talking to some UK labels.
Their song "Stay, Son" has a near-epic grandeur which is wonderfully grounded by the vocal's indie scruffiness. Simply put, this is orchestral-pop that pulsates with an indie vibe.
