School of Seven Bells: New Album Out 2/28

GHOSTORY OUT FEBRUARY 28 ON
VAGRANT RECORDS/GHOSTLY INTERNATIONAL

School of Seven Bells
School Of Seven Bells are back with their third release, Ghostory, out February 28 on Vagrant Records/Ghostly Inernational. The highly-anticipated album finds the band's lineup has evolved along with the music; formerly a trio, the band is now a duo: guitarist/producer Benjamin Curtis and vocalist Alejandra Deheza.

The familiar ethereal and enigmatic tones are omnipresent, surrounded by layers of influences from '80s pop, shoegaze and ambient electronic sounds. However, Ghostory comes with a story in mind; the tale of a young girl named Lafaye and the ghosts that surround her life.

"Everyone has ghosts", says Alejandra Deheza; "They're every love you've ever had, every hurt, every betrayal, every heartbreak. They follow you, stay with you." This detailed storytelling is evident from start to finish on the record, weaving a tale that moves between a fervent synthesized adventure and spacious lyrical euphoria. Tracks like "Love Play" and "Show Me Love" create a hauntingly indelible atmosphere that grab attention with the ambitious wordplay in the center of it all. Surrounding tracks like "Lafaye" and "Scavenger" entice the vibe of previous School of Seven Bells releases with their steadily dance-centric tempo and uplifting melodic progressions.

School Of Seven Bells formed in 2006 as a trio (including Claudia Deheza) and released their debut full-length, Alpinisms, on Ghostly International in 2008. Ghostory is truly their defining work, beautifully crafted and haunting, with the story of Lafaye permeating the psyche long after the music stops.
