heartbreaking and hook-heavy synth pop - undoubtedly their most accomplished record to date and one unavoidably linked to the tragedy that befell the group.

in 2012 bejamin curtis was diagnosed with a rare disease and less than a year later alejandra Deheza would be the sole member of the group. Curtis passed away on December 29, 2013 and soon after Deheza moved to Los Angeles to finish the record with Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, Nine Inch Nails, M83). the resulting album is a spectacularly honest and beautiful piece of pop. one being billed as the final school of seven bells album. says alejanda; “ This is a love letter from start to finish. It's the story of us starting from that first day we met in 2004, and that's the story of School of Seven Bells.” a truly unique and wonderful record - for fans of lykke li and zola jesus. "These are songs of sadness, sung with a smile - Befitting its celebratory stance, there’s a little bit of everything SVIIB have put to tape here – buzzsaw shoegaze fuzz, electro-pop bounce & mournful, whispered harmonies" 9/10 - drowned in sound
