Lyrics from Forever BoyHailing from Bologna, Italy, with the exception of front man Jonathan Clancy (who is Canadian) indie pop rockers A Classic Education combine sixties pop melodies with a guitar driven garage sound. The band formed in 2007 with Jonathan Clancy, Luca Mazzieri, and Paul Pieretto, and has since grown into a six-piece lineup with the inclusion of Giulia Mazza, Federico Oppi and Stefano Roveda. The band has enjoyed a heavy touring schedule these past few years including festivals CMJ, SXSW, and supporting British Sea Power. 2011’s Call It Blazing was released in October as a follow up from 2010’s Hey There Stranger. Call It Blazing is aptly titled, for while still maintaining their day jobs, the band needed to secure vacation time in order to come to the States, record their full-length album, and play CMJ all in one long-winded trip.
