I wish I loved anything as much as The Bell Collective love bells. So deep is their dedication that they actually have a bell carrion, which is a three ton behemoth that holds 50 brass bells. Their passion has caught the eye of producer Pantha Du Prince, who’s collaborating with them on the upcoming record Elements of Light. Check out the first cut “Photon,” streaming below, which strangely doesn’t have any bells. Just kidding, the track’s got a huge variety of plinks, chimes, and plucks that overlap like the bustle of happy marketplace in some long-hidden country.
Grab Elements of Light January 15th on Rough Trade.
