While the song Nightschool may share a title with one of The Xcerts’ finest, this is a more serene and dreamy affair. Capturing the essence of jangly 80s indie-pop with a distinct nod to The Smiths in the Morrissey-style vocals, there is enough personal distinction and identity to mark Ancient Times out and they’d certainly fit in the current wave of shoegaze bands being led by the likes of The History of Apple Pie. Throughout the 4 minutes, George pours his heart out as he talks of this particular Nightschool feeling cold and how he has been waiting far too long, while also offering the comforting line ‘I’d like to think I’d help you if you’d ask’ – Spectral Nights Blog.
