A Classic Education were in the States and played JB’s in Philly on March 30th. The 5 piece from Bologna, Italy brings an amazingly full live sound stemming from two guitars, a bass, drums and keys. Comprised of Jonathan, Luca, Paul, Giulia, and Federico the band has an indie rock feel with a touch of electronica – albeit a very small touch. There are also hints of garage rock in there. It is quite a nice package. The band represents a full ensemble effort fronted by Jonathan Clancyness of the solo project, His Clancyness. We loved his work with that and were excited to see his work manifested live with a full backing band. A let down it was not.
Currently on the Lefse record label, A Classic Education has two EPs and a Long Play out. The LP was a 2011 release and many of the songs played came off this album. Thoroughly an enjoyable set, we have some video for you below to check out:
