Presenting...A Classic Education

Something new for you (my quest is endless; in the words of the late, great John Peel: 'I Just Want to Hear Something I've not heard before.') This time from Bologna, Italy.

Cheesy euro-pop? A fusion of opera and metal?

Don't stereotype and put your expectations aside. A Classic Education are three men: Jonathan Clancy, Paul Pieretto & Luca Mazzieri who play a myriad of instruments and make some of the most gorgeous music you will hear. This is gorgeous, atmospheric indie music in the vein of the Decemberists, and Arcade Fire, whom they have supported. And if you like iLIKETRAINS, then I reckon they might be up your street too.

From the emails I've exchanged with them, I understand that they are not signed at the moment, but that's surely only a matter of time.

Give these mp3s a listen:

A Classic Education -'Stay Son.' mp3

A Classic Education -'Victories At Night.' mp3

Then if you like what you hear, pop over to their MySpace and make friends.

...Why deny yourself the pleasure?

Think I'll have these. Nice one Ed. Quite epic. The singer's accent reminds me of the guy from Band of Horses.

Glad you both like them, and remember to spread the word!
