Stream Hallowed Bells’ self-titled EP

JP Basileo

The hypnotic potential for electronic musicians to create otherworldly ambiances seems to grow with the output of every new artist. Philadelphia duo Hallowed Bells are taking listeners on a heavenly voyage with their simply constructed, yet charmingly complex debut self-titled EP. Alison Stout and Darian Scatton, both from electronic backgrounds, teamed up in 2013 to write these six songs which they recorded a year later in Scatton’s attic. Organ tones painted over by synth and chimes give an immediate ethereality in the first song, “Color Organ”, shortly thereafter dashed by a chromatic drop-off, which recurs through the album (also notably on the appropriately titled “Gloomaroo”), and adds a tumbling effect to the weightless nature of the sound. Little insertions of percussion, as on “Jovian Lights” and the analog maze-like “Baba Yaga” ground the record to remind you that you’re still on the planet.

Hallowed Bells is available now on Blight Records.
