school of seven bells – at your fingertips

2222857248_b92191d48f

The good people over at the Fingertips blog site just steered me over to one of my new favorite bands, and I thought I’d return the favor right here.

I’ve long been a huge fan of Cocteau Twins, Lush, Love Spirals Downward and bands with that sort of sound. With layers of guitars and a reliable drum machine driving the landscape, School of Seven Bells is another band that fits with that grouping.

Relatively new and out of New York, the band is Benjamin Curtis (formerly of Secret Machines) and twins Alejandra and Claudia Deheza. Other musicians turn out for live appearances, but the band is officially made up of those three.

They’re currently touring with M83 and seem to be making it all over the country. If you can’t make it out, pick up their album here.

Unfortunately, they have no videos, per se, to show you. But here’s the song “Connjur,” which I think is a good representation of the band.

    You just can’t go wrong with twins…I expect to hear one of their songs as the backdrop to a new Mac commercial soon.
