Here’s the new single from the forthcoming and final School Of Seven Bells album SVIIB that’s released February 26th on Full Time Hobby (Europe) and Vagrant (US). It’s an anthemic and gorgeous track led by Alley’s bewitching intertwined melody and an anthemic sampled chorus hook.
SVIIB was written during the summer of 2012 by members Alejandra Deheza and Benjamin Curtis. At the fall of that year Curtis was diagnosed with a rare form of t-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma and passed away on December 13th. In 2014 Deheza moved to Los Angeles to complete work on the record with producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, Nine Inch Nails, M83) where it was finished within a month and a half.
Montreal art rockers Braids have shared the music video for their single”In Kind”, taken from the forthcoming “Flourish // Perish” LP. Directed by Angus Borsos, it features several panoramic views of the natural world, plus footage of Braids frontwoman Raphaelle Standell-Preston (also the vocal half of Blue Hawaii). Flourish // Perish is out August 20 via Arbutus/Full Time Hobby/Flemish Eye.
