Few bands know in advance exactly what their last album will be. For School Of Seven Bells, there's no question; SVIIB, the group's fourth full-length, is its swan song. Curtis' death three years ago at 35 — after a yearlong battle with a rare form of lymphoma — has sealed School Of Seven Bells' fate, leaving a body of work that transcends synth-pop by reaching higher, deeper and broader. SVIIB is the duo's crowning achievement. Shadowed by death and encased in digital production, it's nonetheless warm and beautiful.

...a rebellious teenager slaves away in a dystopian world, harvesting crystals from a vast grey landscape. This sparkling bounty is given as an offering to a tribal deity, who resides in a shrine guarded by sentinels with green glowing masks, where he is constantly under attack from an army of drones… Take a moment to imagine what it would be like to live in that world. The new video for Reminder - the first single from the upcoming album Moderat III - will take you there!
