Great New Artist

We were recently linked to Denmark-based Chimes&Bells by Simon Raymonde (of Cocteau Twins), and are completely diggin’ it. A new band who labels themselves via MySpace within the enormously vague ’melodramatic popular song’ category, their actual sound is dreamy, lovely, and occasionally very eerie. The music sounds like the end of a long night, when you’re tired and ready for sleep. Think Sigur Ros, maybe, or occasionally Grizzly Bear, and definitely give them a listen.

Their new EP is going to see wider release very soon soonish, and we have a feeling they are about to get some major online love for it, so check them out now if you want to say ‘I heard them when’. Sadly, I doubt they’ll be touring around here any time soon, but we can always hope for SXSW next year.
