Hip ass Australian outfit or lost 80's alternative band from the UK? Buy their work and decide for yourself...either way, a fantastic sound that demands to be played loudly with your fists in the air!
With their latest single, Death Bells have crafted a perfect example of their sonic dichotomy: “Echoes,” with its stadium-ready guitars and Canning’s most infectious melodies to date; and the pulsating “Move Through Me,” a bass-driven post-punk stomp. Canning’s self-described “love songs gone wrong” search for silver linings in life’s upheavals—an unusually positive approach to melancholy music that Canning chalks up to living in Australia as well as an unusual camaraderie within the band. “It’s such a beautiful place, it’s hard to make music that doesn’t have an element of lightheartedness,” he explains. “The darker elements of the music and lyrics are present, but that’s just one facet of our lives. We’re generally happy people.” Thankfully for the band and listeners alike, with their move to America, an impending sophomore full length, and a nearly unending tour schedule, Death Bells show no signs of slowing their fearless musical pursuit.

Blending influences of Sisters of Mercy, Joy Division, and The Cure into one song is quite an accomplishment.
Hit The Floor does that, but rises into a genre defining, stellar track. Marvelous song, and a must have LP. CARPAGE
