School of Seven Bells

School of Seven Bells achieve an exquisite balance of icy grandeur and sunny pop melodies on their second album, Disconnect from Desire. The trio's dreamscape is constructed from drifting synths and arch, jangly guitar work from former Secret Machine Benjamin Curtis, latched onto incisive rhythms that pulse impatiently when not careening down cascading tangents, then gilded with the angelic harmonies of twins Alejandra and Claudia Deheza. Glistening pop hooks dangle with sparkling clarity from SVIIB's mystical musings while the Dehezas' voices dart and dash around one another, equally flirtatious at the monastery or the beach. Tonight will be the band's first gig in the Twin Cities since Claudia Deheza left the group for "personal reasons." 18+. (Photo by Abbey Drucker)
