Rob Ulitski - 15th Aug 2019

Lochlainn McKenna (aka Locky), has created a charming and poignant sort of unrequited love for Keane, which sees the band take on the roles of teachers judging the school’s singing competition, as a group of ‘mini Keanes’ play the house band.

The band each take on a different role: Tom Chaplin as the clumsy PE Teacher, pianist Tim Rice-Oxley as the utterly disinterested and too cool for school History Teacher, drummer Richard Hughes as the confused and weary Maths Teacher who can’t keep up, and bassist Jesse Quin as the eccentric, enthusiastic Arts Teacher.

The mixture of HD and Mini-DV footage is nostalgic and reminiscent of the early 00's, and the simple DIY style set design is a throwback to cheesy school talent shows (that I'm sure we were all forced to participate in as kids). 

Bassist Jesse Quin tells us, “our hope was that we’d come up with a light-hearted and fun, but emotionally compelling look at the idea of loving maybe a little too much.” He continues “though it may fall apart, we can find some solace in the memories of what was – “Nothing can take that away from me.”'
