A Classic Education is a recent addition to the indie market all the way from Italy. I was immediately captured from the first song I heard from them, "Stay, Son". This song is the first track off of their "First Ep" and the lyrics "Never mistake the tears the falling down your cheek..." really stuck with me. This song made me listen further into the ep which was just a collaboration of songs they wrote their first year as a band. Since this "First ep" a 7" and a free download have been released on their website. This band has a lot of raw power and emotion that all ties back to the lead singer's vocals and their chamber pop sound. They are currently playing at SXSW 2010, and I believe from these performances they will gain some needed recognition. Hopefully they will put a full length out in the near future.
RIYL: Modest Mouse, Arcade Fire, Bishop Allen
