Schoolyard Love by Johko is an oh so cool and perfectly poised bedroom pop song

Schoolyard Love by Johko is a cool and perfectly poised bedroom pop song. Besides the simple and sweet approach, it has deep hooks and lyrical content that is smart and charming. The dissonant lead break is percussive and so rad too. I absolutely love the lyrics:


"I've got a lot of books
But it's hard for me to finish them to the end
I'm in love with the beginnings
It's a flaw that I'm working to mend"
and...
"I don't mind
I don't mind
I don't mind if you bury me alive
As long as you stay here
As long as you stay here
As long as you stay
And give me more of that schoolyard love"                                                                                                               
The full length "Chronica" LP that just came out days ago on Bandcamp and Spotify.
