CMU Approved

Approved: School Of Seven Bells – Disconnect From Desire

By | Published on Tuesday 6 July 2010

Formed by ex-Secret Machines guitarist Benjamin Curtis and identical twin sisters Alejandra and Claudia Deheza, formerly of On! Air! Library!, School Of Seven Bells released their debut album, ‘Alpinisms’, in 2008. Although it arrived with little fanfare, the record quickly found a devoted set of fans, making them the band of choice amongst the recent surge of shoegaze-influenced acts.

Next week SVIIB return with album number two, ‘Disconnect From Desire’. Less claustrophobic than its predecessor, the new songs rise and swell, allowing the Dehezas’ vocals to fully come forth. The album is now streaming in full on the band’s website. For those in a hurry, check out the opening track and forthcoming single, ‘Windstorm’, and the dreamy ‘I L U’.
