Welland, Ontario’s Big School recalls high school crushes with a lo-fi pop punk spirit. Off of their debut full-length Mint, “Jenny Becker” turns a tale of unrequited love into a losing streak in the game of love with blown-out guitars, distorted vocals and an undeniably catchy hook. Strong songwriting and energetic performances make this scrappy, rough around the edges debut a worthwhile listen. It’s like the high school reunion you never knew you wanted.

Big School will be celebrating Mint‘s release on December 8 in Welland at The Black Sheep Lounge.
