Though Death Bells has only been around five years, they’ve certainly done more than most in a short time frame. After relocating to Los Angeles from Sydney, the duo has been on a tear to prove they can bring all the heat to everything they do. On their new single “Around the Bend” they achieve just that wile still keeping their core sound.
With a slow opening, the post-punk touches that the band employs don’t come fully realized until the song gets going. Complete with snappy drums, guitars soaked in pedals and vocals with that classic post-punk tone that sound so far away all together make the song shimmer. When the energy kicks in, all of those elements become one making the single stick with you well after the first time you hear it.
The song can be streamed on all streaming sites, it can be purchased from all digital music stores as well. Death Bells will be on tour beginning June 15 at Cellar Door in Visalia, CA until September 01 at Hotel Congress in Tucson, AZ. A complete listing of their tour dates can be accessed here.
