Indie song for the week: Is he really coming home? by The School

is he really coming home by the school

Our featured indie song for the week — well actually, it’s been on the sidebar since last week, I just forgot to mention it (oops!) — is a sweet, delightful tune titled “Is He Really Coming Home?” by indie pop band The School. The track is in their debut release Loveless Unbeliever.

Is he really coming home?
I cross my fingers and my toes
Is he really coming back, coming back for me?

Alright, I wouldn’t say it’s a love song but I wanted to share it with you because I’ve been featuring a lot of retro fashion lately and as you will see below, the Tom Readdy-directed┬ávideo oozes with an undeniable Sixties charm, both visually and aurally. (Check out the girls’ darling 60s outfits). That, plus I’m a sucker for girl group harmonies and winsome, tambourine-and-xylophone-infused melodies.

If you are planning a retro or vintage wedding, be sure to include this song on your playlist.

Hit play and enjoy!

Produced by Ian Catt (Saint Etienne, Trembling Blue Stars, The Field Mice) The School’s songs, with their hummable choruses, their doodoo-wops and imaginative Spector-esque arrangements show the same sense of melody as the 60s girl-group greats but updated with an impressive pop vision & elegance inherent in the best pop.
