School of Seven Bells

In Music on November 14, 2008 at 9:14 am

The School of Seven Bells is said to have been a South American academy of pick pockets back in the 80s.  PBS aired a special one late night on this mythical academy of thieves, which inspired a certain Alejandra to embark on an artistic journey under the cognomen School of Seven Bells.

Two years later, in 2006 this idea came to fruition and so the band School of Seven Bells was born.  The core of this band is made up of twin sisters Alejandra and Claudia Deheza, and the former Secret Machines member Benjamin Curtis.  The band toured with Blonde Redhead in September 2007 and on October 23rd released their debut album, Alpinisms.  Filled with dreamy electronics and vocals that take wing, the psychedelic group won themselves the rating of “America’s shoegaze revival at its most meticulously refined” by SPIN Magazine.

The School of Seven Bells is opening up for M83 tonight at Webster Hall.  Both bands on stage in one night? This show should not disappoint, go check it out!
