School Of Seven Bells Ghostory on LP
School Of Seven Bells are back with their third release, Ghostory, out on Vagrant Records/Ghostly International. The highly-anticipated album finds that not only has their music evolved so has the lineup, formerly a trio, the band is now a duo featuring only guitarist/producer Benjamin Curtis and vocalist Alejandra Deheza.
Recorded in-between tours, Ghostory exemplifies a fervent progression of School Of Seven Bells' growth as artists, preserving the common themes found on their last two releases but exposing them in different fashions. 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 intact, the tale of a young girl named Lafaye and the ghosts that surround her life.
This detailed storytelling is evident from start to finish, 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 grabs your attention with ambitious wordplay in the center of it all while accompanying cuts like "Lafaye" and "Scavenger" conjure up the vibe of previous School of Seven Bells releases with steady dance-centric tempos and uplifting melodic progressions.
