We are longtime fans of the Portland-based dream pop act The High Violets (read our 2010 interview with Clint Sargent here), and the new single “Bells” has got us understandably excited. We haven’t heard from the band since the gorgeous Cinéma LP they released in 2010, and “Bells” is just the fix we needed. Kaitlyn ni Donovan’s voice is as angelic as ever, and on “Bells” the band provides a brilliant and ethereal backdrop to showcase it. It’s the perfect introduction to their forthcoming LP Heroes and Halos, which will be released via Saint Marie Records on April 1st. Pre-orders are being taken here.
