New Schools of Seven Bells - "Conjur"
Download: School of Seven Bells - "Conjur"
Not unlike High Places, this Brooklyn-based trio craft ethereal tapestries of sound that's given a rock solid foundation based upon electronically-composed beats and rich, dual female harmonies. There's less of a hip-hop and world influence here, but those who are taken with Mary Pearson's vocals in High Places should go ga-ga over the twin Deheza sisters (making the whole enterprise reminiscent of Blonde Redhead). Schools of Seven Bells consist of Ben Curtis from Secret Machines and the aforementioned sisters from On! Air! Library!. They've got an album coming out called Alpinisms, and "Conjur" is the first, non-Stereogum exclusive, track to leak from it. It's a doozy of an electro-pop number.
Listen to it at the top of the post.
