School Of Seven Bells – 'The Night'

This will be the most blogged song of the week… no doubt! Nevertheless, School Of Seven Bells have released the first cut from their third record ‘Ghostory’, available through Ghostly International/Vagrant Records on February 28. ‘The Night’ follows on from the ‘Disconnect With Desire’ album but if this single is any indication, expect it to be a little more 80s in sound. The New Yorkers dream pop origins are less telling with ‘The Night’, it’s brighter, poppier and will appeal to a larger audience. With that said, it will be interesting to hear whether the rest of ‘Ghostory’ is as accessible.

On August 23rd LA based artist Active Child (known to his mother as Pat) will release his debut album ‘You Are All I See’. The first track made public is ‘Hanging On’ released through Vagrant Records / Spunk. To be honest, I can’t make my mind up about this one at all, parts of it are really interesting but I’m just. not. sure. I’ll let the music do the talking and will check out ‘You Are All I See’ later in the month.

You can download ‘Hanging On’ for free if you’re willing to tweet about it…here.
