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

Number of Iowa abortions climb after plummeting for decades

Posted on

first_imgThe Des Moines Register reports last year’s increase came after the number of Iowa abortions dropped 56% from 2008 to 2018. DES MOINES (AP) —- The number of women having abortions in Iowa climbed last year, a turnaround that critics blame on the state’s controversial decision to withdraw from a federally funded family planning program.  After decades of plummeting abortion numbers, the state last year recorded 3,566 abortions. That is 8% more than the previous year. last_img
