London based Australian duo Dark Bells’ third single ‘In Head’ is a perfect example of the bands strident monochrome indie psyche tinged pop. Singer and guitarist Teneil Throssell’s euphonic vocals and sparkling intricate guitar work illuminate a song that chimes with a dark glittering allure.
On the back of their last single ‘Want’ and their live shows which are generating genuine excitement via word of mouth buzz ‘In Head’ should further consolidate their burgeoning reputation. Backed by Ash Moss’s driving bass lines it’s a tune that steadily builds into a towering vortex of melody and elegantly crafted shoegazey atmospherics. The band are currently touring with the luxuriantly bouffanted Temples as well as putting the finishing touches to their début album.
