At the beginning of the year, School Of Seven Bells put out their final album, SVIIB, released after Benjamin Curtis’ death. (Read our feature on the band’s final chapter.) Today, we get a video for “Signals” that features Alejandra Deheza dancing her heart out to the very dance-able song. Here’s what she had to say about the track and video to Noisey:
‘Signals’ is a 100 percent love song to all of the music that woke us up as kids—that woke us up to the fact that music wasn’t other, that it was in our blood, that got us stalking record stores, sneaking into 21 and over shows, obsessing over Melody Makers in the public library, listening through radio countdowns (Power 96 MIA!) just to get to THAT song, the thrill of getting to play with our heroes—a total mixtape of love and thank yous. Favorite moment on the record. Making a video for this was a definite from its first day in the studio. Daniel was in LA working on a film, so we grabbed dinner. I remember he asked me, ‘If you could make a video for any song on this record, what would it be?’ I didn’t even have to think about it.
SVIIB is out now via Vagrant.
