get to know: Hurricane Bells

Hurricane Bells is the new project from Steve Schiltz, frontman from the NYC band, Longwave. Back in 2003 Longwave released a fantastic disc called, The Strangest Things that recalled an atmospheric early 90's sound, led by the driving number, "Everywhere You Turn." For Hurricane Bells' debut album, Tonight Is The Ghost via Vagrant records, Schiltz wrote, recorded, and played everything on the album entirely by himself and had plans just to self-release the disc. Then, a b-side from the album, "Monsters," found itself landing on the super-hyped new Twilight/New Moon soundtrack, and before he knows it his little solo bedroom project landed him a deal with Vagrant.
You can download the single "This Year" below or catch Hurricane Bells at an upcoming headlining show in NYC at the Living Room on 12/2.
