School Of Seven Bells : Alpinisms

Formed of ex-Secret Machines guitarist Benjamin Curtis and twin sisters Alejandra and Claudia Deheza, School Of Seven Bells have been building anticipation for their debut album since first emerging in early 2007. Named after a mythological Andean pickpocket academy, the Brooklyn trio create out-there songs, led beautifully by the Deheza sisters blood-harmony, crossing ethereal folk with prog-pop and electronics. Their sound is hard to pin down and crosses many periods of time, resulting in something akin to medieval folk ballads remixed by Kevin Shields (I said it was hard to pin down). 'Alpinisms' grows in briliance with every listen.
