Bells and Robes Take Fans On Refreshing Electronic Journey In New Music Video With Swain

Posted on

first_imgHailing from Atlanta, Georgia, Bells and Robes will lead you on a refreshing electronic journey through time and space, combining elements of live improvisation with synth-heavy sounds of the future. Fresh off the release of their experimental debut EPs, “One Should See Sound” Part 1 and Part 2, Bells and Robes offers us a more straight-forward interpretation of their sound while maintaining their veracity as avant-garde sound creators and technicians with their new track “Duality.” Blending atmospheric chill-wave and fast-paced bass lines, Bells and Robes aims to create a vibrant energy while concurrently soothing audiophiles into a fantasy-like state of reverie.Performing over self-produced “electro-soundscapes,” Luke Sipka plays keyboard behind the boards while Dean Spaniol plays drums and creates samples. With the help of up-and-coming rapper, Swain, the trio combines the vigor and brusque electronic sound of current R&B music with the ad-libbing of a live band in a way that leaves listeners feeling calm and contented. Watch the band’s first-ever music video for “Duality” below:“We are very proud of how “Duality” was realized into our first official music video as Bells and Robes. We’ve been building with a talented team of creatives in Atlanta including Swain and his collective, LNEM, Frank Murillo, who shot the video, and all the other people involved with this project. This will be the first of many to come!” the band tells us.Bells and Robes are an Atlanta-based electronica pair taking the music world by storm. The Bells and Robes name comes from a Zen Koan titled “Bells and Robes.” This parable tells readers that “to understand intimately one should see sound.” The duo combines the high energy and crisp electronic sound of a dance DJ with the unpredictable improvisation of a jam band set. With the addition of Swain’s silver-tongued, soulful rap-style, this track is an absorbing hit for the ages. Follow the band on their website.last_img read more

CUNA sent it letter in response to a proposed delay of the mandatory underwriting provisions to the rule to Nov. 19, 2020 (originally set for Aug. 19, 2019.).CUNA believes the proposed delay would provide credit unions an opportunity to adequately prepare for implementation.“Given the Payday Rule’s broad scope and the pending challenge to the rule’s legality in federal court, the Bureau should delay the rule in its entirety rather than merely delaying the ability-to-repay (ATR) provisions that are the subject of the rescission proposal,” the letter reads. “A delay of the entire rule is especially warranted if the CFPB intends to amend other aspects of the rule, such as the payments provisions, in the near term.”CUNA believes the CFPB’s approach to regulating payday lending should be consistent with several broad objectives: continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
