School of Seven Bells

Despite being in Minnesota on Minnesota Monday for once, I am going to represent my 'hood by posting a Brooklyn band today - School of Seven Bells. Their new album “Alpinisms” is an interesting mish-mash of genres – electronic, experimental, pop, rock, and various influences from around the world. What comes to mind is The Cranberries meets Evanescence meets MIA. I have to say I didn’t expect to like it at first, but it’s grown on me with each listen. Their music is fairly dramatic, a little bit haunting, but still catchy, and has some great complex layering. It’s always a very full sound that they maintain throughout most of their songs.
