School of Seven Bells Share New Track On Noisey, SVIIB Pre-Order Now Live
Today, School Of Seven Bells are pleased to share a new track off their upcoming and final record, SVIIB. Entitled “Open Your Eyes,” the premiere serves as a precursor to the album’s release on February 12, 2016. Check it out today exclusively on Vice.
It was in the summer of 2012 that SVIIB was written, “I can easily say that it was one of the most creative and inspired summers of our lives,” Alejandra Deheza recounts. “What followed was the most tragic, soul shaking tidal wave that life could ever deliver, but even that wouldn’t stop the vision for this record being realized”.
It was in early 2013 that Benjamin Curtis was diagnosed with a rare form of T-Cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma, less than a year later Deheza would be the sole member of the group. Benjamin Curtis passed away on December 29, 2013.
In 2014 Deheza moved to Los Angeles to finish the record with Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, Nine Inch Nails, M83), “I’m trying to feature Benjamin as much as possible”, Meldal-Johnsen says. As soon as Alley was settled in LA it took the two only a month and a half to finish the record. “ 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,” Alley says, “When I see those roman numerals, I just think of an era”.
SVIIB will be released on February 12, 2016 via Vagrant Records in the US, and Full Time Hobby in Europe, but today fans can pre-order the album on iTunes and receive “Open Your Eyes” as an instant download.

Active Child Releases Two Part Video For "Midnight Swim" & "Darling"
Active Child’s highly anticipated sophomore release, Mercy, was released this past summer and served as a follow up to 2011’s critically acclaimed LP, You Are All I See. After touring extensively, Grossi took a short break but is back today with the premiere of dueling official videos for the album tracks ‘Midnight Swim’ and ‘Darling.’
Starring Aliana Lohan and directed by TS&R, the videos were shot in one single take on film, a portrait captured in a moving picture. “I knew I wanted something simple and pure to fit the placid tone of 'Darling,’ says Grossi. “ And once we started shooting the single take of Ali at sunset I knew it was going to be unlike any other video I've done or seen really. I love the way it stops time.” Set on the beach at sunset, the camera follows Lohan in a private moment that leads us in to a portrait like setting.
The directors, TS&R comment, “While it may it be possible to fall in love with a portrait, moving and still, the heartbreak is that we are always kept at a distance from this romance. The intimacy and closeness we are able to experience is always untouchable. In front of the glass door of a picture frame or the canvas of a painting, we are only allowed to look. We cannot smell the sea, or feel the wind but still we are there. When asked to spend 412 mins lost in a stare, the connection to our subject and backdrop grows. The mystery and curiosity begs us to know more and wait for change, if any at all. “
Watch the captivating stillness of the official videos HERE.
