English Teacher Share New Single ‘Mastermind Specialism’

Track: English Teacher – Mastermind Specialism

Leeds’ English Teacher have been a busy bunch. Following a sold out UK tour, which followed a sold out SCALA in London, they’ve been in the US playing to New York and L.A. Whilst we patiently await album news, the band have shared a more delicate cut in single ‘Mastermind Specialism’. It’s also a song which, according to their X post, references Doctor Who.

What They Said: “Decision paralysis is an ache that has murmured in me through sitting on smaller fences, through to questioning my theology, my sexuality, my career and so on. Watching Jaco Van Dormael’s incredible sci-fi/fantasy Mr Nobody put the cause and effect of this issue into perspective; my life has been consistent in its inconsistency. 12 different houses across the country and mixed-race I’ve always been a bit in-between and I think that’s where this song, and a lot of the songs we’re due to release, come from.
