English Teacher have shared a new track.

‘Wallace’ is the b-side to their recent single ‘R&B’, out now via Nice Swan Records’ Introduces series, and arrives ahead of their upcoming tour with Feet, and a spot on Sports Team’s upcoming bus trip to Margate.

“‘Wallace’ is an apocalyptic monologue about what happens when people listen to Wallace Hartley, the band-leader of the Titanic, as a distraction to the sinking of the ship,” they explain.

“Born in my hometown, his name is stretched across the door of our local Wetherspoons – thinking about the irony of this got me wrapped up in how the metaphor perfectly expressed my feelings towards the political leanings of the area and the general rise of the right-wing in modern England.”
