Luca, Paul, Jonathan, Stefano, Federico, Giulia- A CLASSIC EDUCATION

"I just close my eyes and a million different movies start."


A Classic Education

GONE to Sea is the opening track from Bologna-based six-piece, A Classic Education’s latest EP Hey There Stranger. Full of endearing, floaty notes, and vocals that hint at The Shins, there’s a sincerity to the music that results in a happy restfulness. In order to better acquaint themselves, with you, dear reader, each member has contributed a song to this mix – their first. “We’ve never made a compilation together, we've been a flying band so far,” they told The Weekly Mix Tape, “we can't wait to get in the van to jam to some compilation tapes.”

THOM YORKE - The Eraser

Stefano: "Musically, I love electronic treatments of pianos, minimalism and the idea that the song is weird but in four. We could talk for hours about the voice, I just love the song and I think that in a simple way it gives the idea of the thesis and anti-thesis that can happen in a romantic relationship!"
