School of Seven Bells "Connjur"
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
- Label: Ghostly
Brooklyn band School of Seven Bells proves that shoegaze is alive and well in 2008. Taken from their debut album. Alpinisms, "Connjur" is a dreamy pop tune anchored in swirling guitar melodies and highlighted by the soaring vocals of twin frontwomen Alejandra and Claudia Dehaza. While the song recalls classic acts like Cocteau Twins and Slowdive, the band's subtle use of glitchy electronics and low-end fuzz puts a refreshing modern spin on the oft-imitated genre.
