Not unlike their moniker, Death Bells’ sound rings crystalline and radiant—case in point: the Australian dream pop band’s latest single, “Only You.” The track is a bulwark of post-punk, built on a blunt rhythm, webbing guitar, and ardent vocals. Frosty and monochromatic, the single’s accompanying video (directed by Jai Love) encapsulates Death Bells’ fascination with the wispy romanticism of the ‘80s. Watch the video in full today.
Born in 2014, the Sydney band bridges the gap between somber bedroom pop and bloodletting post-punk. After releasing a self-titled EP last year, Death Bells will be gifting the world with a full album later this year.
Look for ‘Standing At The Edge Of The World’ to be released in North America on September 29 via Funeral Party Records (and in Australia by Burning Rose). More news to come.
