On 'Alpinism', School of Seven Bells' debut full-length, this trio deliver a heavenly blend of vocal harmonies & post-krautrock chug.

School of Seven Bells is the dream-pop trio of ex-Secret Machines guitarist Benjamin Curtis & vocalist twins Alejandra + Claudia Deheza of On!Air!Library!

On 'Alpinism', the group's debut full-length, they deliver a heavenly blend of vocal harmonies & post-krautrock chug.

An intoxicating blend of droning soundscapes, ethereal vocals, afro-pop and electro house influences, School of Seven Bells put their highly individual stamp on the well-trod zones of post-shoegaze rock.

"The effect is warm goth - New Order with more eros."
-ROLLING STONE

"Their new project reveals a range of influences and a sophisticated approach to arrangement that sets the trio well apart from less imaginative latter-day shoegazers."
-SPIN

"The Brooklyn-based act's debut album conjures an impossible collaboration between the Cocteau Twins, Sherpa Tenzing and the US laptop maestros Matmos..."
-MOJO

"Twin sisters Alejandra and Claudia Deheza make music that seems lifted from a dream... One of the year's most intoxicating debuts."
-CLASH
