School of Seven Bells at the Cargo
Psychedelic-indie super-group (ok maybe not a super-group but still pretty damn good) School of Seven Bells are over in the UK touring off their debut album Alpinisms and earlier on in the week they played the Cargo in London’s East End.
The venue perfectly captured their style of music, chilled out but ready to surprise you at any moment. The live show had former Secret Machines guitarist Benjamin Curtis semi-head banging and filling the room with cosmic guitar music, with so much reverb and delay on it that what your hearing in the crowd is something he played 5 minutes before. While that’s happening twins Alejandra and Claudia Deheza harmoniously fill our ears with their sweet vocals. There are few criticisms that can be made about the show and even then they are superficial criticisms. This is a band to catch live soon, you won’t regret it.
