Film School: Hideout

Film School (the band) released their latest album, Hideout, last week. I’m still going through it to establish an opinion. I’m pretty certain I like it. It sounds an awful lot like The Cure, but that’s a good thing. Seems everyone wants to sound like The Cure these days. Hooray!

There aren’t any new videos from Hideout yet. Here’s 11:11 from last years self titled release:

Pretty blatant Cure rip off sound. Hooray again!!!!
