Bio

New single "Around The World" out Feb 3.

Signalling a lof-fi yet uplifting return to pop music for The Model School, Brendan Wixted is back with new single “Around The World”. Boasting glistening synths & swooning guitars it's the first taste of where the highway leads to next - with early indications showing it’s the right time to take a swing back via lo-fi pop. The 4th album from The Model School will be released mid 2017.

I was a fan of your last album, and you're retaining that current of melody and joining in some anthemic new parts. Driving track! It reminds me of a summer's night at the Hoey (RIP) or something. Thanks Model School.

A catchy poppy rock tune sounding a bit like Tom Petty. There is a great driving atmosphere here creating the feeling of traveling along a long highway. At the same time there is a great bright vibe that gives the song great colour and life!
