Perhaps we have saved the best track of 2015 for last.
Following the sad news in December 2013 that Benjamin Curtis of School of Seven Bells passed away following a diagnosis of T-cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma, Alejandra Deheza decided she would continue working to complete a new album, featuring parts previously recorded by Curtis in 2012.
A couple of months ago, Deheza announced that the new album ‘SVIIB’ would be ready for release on 12 February 2016, describing it as “a love letter from start to finish.”
The first release is ‘Open Your Eyes’; a stunning and emotional rendition with a dreamlike, spoken word feel to it.
Pre-order on iTunes.
Sounds like: Atlas Genius, Oh Wonder, Shura, Purity Ring
