Exclusive Video: School of Seven Bells in a Model Shop

November 26th, 2012

School of Seven Bells’ third album, Ghostory, which BBC Music calls “staggeringly beautiful,” oozes with confident yet minimalist arrangements, crafted by singer Alejandra Deheza and guitarist-producer Benjamin Curtis, now a duo (in the studio, at least) following the departure of Deheza’s twin sister, Claudia. Here, with a little help, they play “Scavenger” surrounded by mannequins in an NYC model-form shop, exclusively for The Bowery Presents Live channel on YouTube.

Deheza and Curtis found liberation in the new lineup, and that adventurousness permeates Ghostory. The two discuss their collaborative spirit in the studio and the artistic statement they were trying to make. Watch the interview: And subscribe to The Bowery Presents Live for more intimate performances and revealing interviews like these, plus the latest info on our upcoming live-streaming shows.

(School of Seven Bells—and Twin Sister—play Music Hall of Williamsburg on Wednesday.)
