Check Out: School of Seven Bells - "Kiss Them For Me"

School of Seven Bells

School of Seven Bells’ Record Store Day release took a little longer finding its way to the internet, but we’ve got the a-side for you now – it’s a cover of Siouxie and the Banshees’ “Kiss Them For Me.” We love how SVIIB can translate grunge crunch into hypnotic, shoegaze haze – they’ve reinvented the track into something that would fit effortlessly within their own oeuvre. Alejandra Dehaza sounds (as usual) like she’s singing incantations over sexy, undulating waves of distorted synth and clattering tribal beats. In the end, you might find “Kiss Them for Me” ranking among your favorite School of Seven Bells songs, even though it’s not technically one of theirs. Check it out.
