Cardiff band the School play the Queen Charlotte in Norwich this Saturday night (doors 8pm) as part of a UK tour coinciding with their new EP.

With a sophisticated, shimmering pop sound somewhere between Spector-esque 60s girl groups and Belle and Sebastian, they have recorded sessions for Marc Riley and Tom Robinson on BBC Radio 6 Music this year.

Their Let It Slip EP (Elefant Records) was produced by Ian Catt (Saint Etienne, the Field Mice).

Main support comes from the Foster Kids, who also supported the School in London this week and will be playing the Indietracks festival at the Midland Railway museum near Derby next month.

Also playing at the Dereham Road venue are the Middle Ones and the Wurpy Quade.
