Death Bells share ‘A Different Kind of Happy‘, a track celebrating small moments of ‘bliss and pure satisfaction’. The duo’s new album New Signs of Life is due 25th September via Dais Records, pre-order herehttps://n-s-o-l.com/

The song’s freeing, gossamer guitars, inspired by Cleaners From Venus, lift the track to celestial heights, with the earnest vocals affirming “Despite the uncertainty of life, I wouldn’t give, I wouldn’t give up“. The track celebrates the fleeting moments when you feel totally at peace, the band twisting their usual darkly atmospheric sound to shimmer and shine.

The band explain the track: “This song conveys a feeling of bliss. It was written last year – there were a couple of fleeting moments where everything felt like it was in it’s right place. It was awesome. Obviously times are different now but we still have a lot to be thankful for, and our optimism remains intact.”

Death Bells demand and deserve your full attention, each new listen destined to be a fan. Immediately the sound consumes you, from the first long-lasting note the expansive environment has been created. The soundscape sweeps you into its intensity.

Death Bells effortlessly encapsulate emotive and explosive energy within their dark alt attributes. Lyrically they lust after their own take on romanticism mixed with melancholy. These darker lyrics fuse with their powerful instrumentation. And throughout the new release a resemble of The Smiths can be found in the moody vocals and harmony, mixed with the dark pop elements yet Death Bells just completely own their own vibe. Compelling, crushing and completely charming.

Death Bells is the longtime musical collaboration between Will Canning and Remy Veselis. Formed in 2015 during their late adolescent years in Sydney, Australia, the act has proven to be a mainstay in the alternative underground musical landscape both in their homeland and overseas during their five-year history. Blurring the lines of post-punk and garage rock, Death Bells has morphed and transformed as the two members have grown up throughout their late teenage years living together into early adulthood. With Canning’s distinctive baritone and the kinetic collection of reverb-drenched leads by Veselis being a constant during their musical output, the two made the permanent move 7,000 miles away to Los Angeles, California in 2018 where the current incarnation of Death Bells has blossomed.  

Following the releases of their debut E.P, much-loved first album, and seven-inch single on Funeral Party Records and their 2019 single on Metropolitan Indian, Death Bells have joined the Dais Records family for their highly anticipated sophomore album New Signs of Life. Three years in the making, the release sees the act embrace their diverse tastes to deliver unforgettable hooks and more expansive sounds across its nine graceful songs. 

Engineered and mixed under the attentive eye of Colin Knight at Paradise Studios throughout mid-to-late 2019, New Signs of Life is the band’s most complete work to date. Along with classic Death Bells brooding romanticism, the themes of the record divulge personal insight into their move across the world and both the strained and new relationships that have materialized throughout their existence. Slated for release on September 25th, New Signs of Life is as advertised – it is the career-defining new chapter to commence the new decade.
