‘Honing a great ability to shift a gear as the band drift in and out of Odessey & Oracle grooves, West Coast rhythms and Brian Jonestown Massacre-esque jams.’ - MCR Live

‘All lived experience, foot-felt rhythms and visceral vocal drawl, wrapped up in a succinct and satisfying track’ - Louder Than War

‘Springfield  Elementary possess an aggressive garage-rock sound with an underlying punk and somewhat unhinged element to their music’ - No Fun Magazine

 

 

Known to ‘smash their stage time into tiny minuscule bits’, Springfield Elementary don’t just play gigs. Made up by Billy Goodwin (Vocals/Guitar), Brad Lewis (Lead Guitar), Liam Moffat (Bass) and Chris Tomkinson (Drums), the psychedelic four-piece were born out of blind optimism that - as a band - they could salvage some credibility for themselves (one broken guitar string at a time).

 

Merging their favourite sounds from the last 50 years of Punk and Psychedelia, Springfield Elementary have only been going for a year but are already making waves in the North - creating their own fuzz-soaked cocktail that truly speaks for itself. If the Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Sonics had a baby, Springfield Elementary would be the fruit of that labour.
