School of Seven Bells Set The City 'Ablaze'

Any time I hear "Tears in Heaven" by Eric Clapton, two things happen: I wind up on the verge of crying (or I straight up burst into tears) and I ponder what it took for a man to perform a song about the death of his own son. I honestly have no clue how Eric Clapton ever got through a single performance of that song. The subject matter is too heartbreaking for me to begin to comprehend having never lost a child. And with the new School of Seven Bells material, I am consistently astonished by Alejandra Deheza's resiliance and ability to keep moving forward with SVIIB despite the tragic death of her longtime partner in the band, Benjamin Curtis.

She's released another video from their record, "Ablaze," and if you have any space in your life for gorgeous dream pop, SVIIB are there to satisfy all your needs. And the video for "Ablaze" captures the 80s, scratched up neon aesthetic that SVIIB are evoking on this new record cycle. I don't think we're ever going to hear any of these songs live, but we can't overstate enough how much we appreciate Deheza's willingness to share this music with the world despite the tragedy the band has faced.

And watch our old school session with SVIIB below.
