Acoustic Tracks, French Students Learn 'Rain' at school, The Throwout Volume 6


Ok, got a bumper edition for you today with some great free music, news, and live show listings!


As you may or may not have seen we've been playing a couple of exclusive ACOUSTIC shows recently. This has been amazing for us to as we've all had fun reworking tracks, playing in new venues, and hitting new audiences. We recorded a few tracks from our show at Cafe Ollo for you to listen to:

LIVE (acoustic) @ Cafe Ollo by Extra Curricular

Keep your eyes peeled for more exclusive ACOUSTIC shows coming soon! We've also made some special acoustic recordings that will appear as extra tracks bundled with single releases next year :)


We've recently been contacted by a teacher from France who has been using our song 'Rain' to teach students English Language, understanding our climate, and international development. Madame Gilbert used 'Rain' as a set text for pupils studying for the Baccalaureate (equivalent to A-levels) at the Lycee de Beauregard, Montbrison, near Lyon. She said:

I would like to say how much I enjoyed studying this song. The music is fun and varied, the singing is fantastic, and I really hope Extra Curricular enjoy a lot of success with their music.

Madame Gilbert also attached a picture of some of her students posing with umbrellas to signify the rain in the song:

As you can imagine we were totally surprised at the news! We are, however, mad excited about it - especially after she told us that it has caused a buzz in the French education system and may be taken up as a set text by more schools in the future; Extra Curricular by name and virtue :)
