On 'Alpinism', School of Seven Bells' debut full-length, this trio deliver a heavenly blend of vocal harmonies & post-krautrock chug.
School of Seven Bells is the dream-pop trio of ex-Secret Machines guitarist Benjamin Curtis & vocalist twins Alejandra + Claudia Deheza of On!Air!Library!
On 'Alpinism', the group's debut full-length, they deliver a heavenly blend of vocal harmonies & post-krautrock chug.
An intoxicating blend of droning soundscapes, ethereal vocals, afro-pop and electro house influences, School of Seven Bells put their highly individual stamp on the well-trod zones of post-shoegaze rock.
"The effect is warm goth - New Order with more eros."
"Their new project reveals a range of influences and a sophisticated approach to arrangement that sets the trio well apart from less imaginative latter-day shoegazers."
"The Brooklyn-based act's debut album conjures an impossible collaboration between the Cocteau Twins, Sherpa Tenzing and the US laptop maestros Matmos..."
"Twin sisters Alejandra and Claudia Deheza make music that seems lifted from a dream... One of the year's most intoxicating debuts."
