School of Seven Bells has always had so much potential and for some reason they’ve been very hit or miss. Some of their songs are worth listening to on repeat while others are eminently forgettable. While I really enjoyed a few of the songs from their last album, Disconnect From Desire, it wasn’t a great listen from start to finish. Even their debut, Alpinisms, was uneven. The jury is still out on their new album, called Ghostory, but the first song is excellent. The Night is a foot tapper that recalls guitarist Benjamin Curtis’ time with Secret Machines while mixing in some of the shoegaze influences that he wears on his sleeve. Although one of the Deheza sisters has left the band leaving just the two principle songwriters, they actually sound better than ever.
