about

A London trio, Schande are known for writing discordantly catchy, melodic indie rock- that joyous blend of 90s indie at its best, mixed with a unique element of the unknown.

What started as a solo project (“Jen Schande”) in the UK during the early 2000s quickly became a band, and Jen ditched the solo moniker to reflect the collective. They released a split 7” with the Cribs and opened for bands like The Gossip. After returning for a time to the US where a stateside incarnation formed, opening for bands such as The Thermals and Against Me!, Jen moved back to her home state of California and settled in San Francisco. Upon moving to London in 2013, she returned to playing solo.

In 2015 Schande was rebirthed as full band, in its most impressive formation to date. Now featuring London promoter and DIY staple Jeremy Sheppard (Ace Bushy Striptease, Flemmings, Night of the Triffids) on drums and Giovanni Villaraut on bass, each member’s musicianship adds its own idiosyncratic touches to create a collective sound.

No longer an extension of Jen’s solo writing, Schande truly is a product of its parts, resulting in the most engaging evolution of the band to date.

Track Name: It's Recently Come To My Attention
A few forsaken, senseless havens
caught unawares in the full wise
Overboard and overtaken
mystery trains own a hot night

Can't fight the moonlight
Not with the words you crave
Fair-weather on

Out of line

Hyper feeling, Detroit leaning
caught unawares on a hot mend
I'll concede that all conceits have
made bored to death seem like a godsend

Can't fight the moonlight
Not with the words you crave
Fair-weather on
Track Name: 501
Our sound stemming from a strong stance
So wait silently
High ground holding for a homestead
Onwards on reprieve

What's that, women of a certain age
hung up on filth and sleaze
Old formats new formations
And rewrite history

Forewarned memory

On cue, countdown covers
Choose flight. choose the least
High ground high on homestead
Higher on reprieve

Forewarned memory

Adverbs, adverse
smart words, sling it like a new verb
wear age like a leave
Track Name: Broken Gavel
Sell it off as circuitry, call it hot wired
Fill it full of urgency, and colour fire

Cover it with secrecy, spell it entire
Fill it full of urgency, call it tired

I'll collapse, I'll collect, mistrial your warning
Track Name: What If It's In Calligraphy?
No science and no surmise
Could win the prize of find
Or hold the colour of your eyes

If you’ll have me
For the short while
For the long while
