The day we met
there was a new fire
whose heart had been drowning for so long
When I was dark
you found a glowing ember
and set my world into a blaze again
It's both sad and beautiful that we have the final album from School of Seven Bells released this year. Sad because Benjamin Curtis died of cancer (in December 2013) after barely completing the recording of his parts for each track. And beautiful because his partner, Alejandra Deheza, made the effort to complete production of the songs she says they wrote at their most prolific and happy, just prior to Curtis' diagnosis. She will not tour solo with material from the band, but Deheza does plan to continue making music.
