School of Seven Bells is busy prepping the release of the Put Your Sad Down EP, the follow up to their third full-length album Ghostory.
Today, the band offers a taste of what's to come on the upcoming digital-only release with "Secret Days" — a restrained, haunting track driven by a series of low-profile drum loops and backing beats. Lead singer Alejandra Deheza constructs swirling layers of delicate harmonies as she sings of youthful melancholy and budding self-awareness. It's a song that could easily dip into overly-histrionic territory, but "Secret Days'" minimalist production lets Deheza's reflections feel more honest than falsely fabricated.
The Put Your Sad Down EP will be released Nov. 13 on Vagrant Records. Check out the EP's tracklisting, as well as School of Seven Bells' upcoming tour dates with Twin Sister, below.
