When You Sing

#50. School Of Seven Bells - When You Sing (8:34)

“When You Sing” starts with a hazy intro that floats in upward circles, slowly transporting us to the top of a lofty mountain where we find Benjamin standing, alone with his guitar. Here he strums out the first eight bars before halting for that perfectly placed beat of silence and diving off the peak to descend alongside Alejandra’s synthesized bloops and ethereal voice. The rest of the song carries us with the band as they plummet past icy peaks and windswept clouds, conjuring up memories of My Bloody Valentine’s “Soon” and delivering our brains into a brisk, chilling trance-like state.

Best Moment: The pause right before the drop off at 1:49 gets me every time.
