Howling Bells- Howling Bells: Review

Sunday, July 23, 2006

With a vocalist whose voice swings somewhere between PJ Harvey and Karen O, you’re probably going to be interested to hear Howling Bells. The Sydney quartet comprised of the Stein siblings, Brendon Picchio and Glenn Moule have been making waves in Britain, leading to them being touted a must see act at this years Reading and Leeds Festivals. But if this album created all the hype, expectations could be seriously shattered. Sure Juanita Stein’s voice is amazing, but accompanying her are a very unprovocative band.
Despite this, opener ‘The Bell Hit’ is a beautiful piece of haunting pop music, Stein’s voice flawless. Then it's mostly downhill; your forced to sit through a number of empty, repetitive songs, before ‘In The Woods’ and ‘I’m Not Afraid’ ensure you get a few moments of satisfaction. This debut album may not hold your attention for more than five minutes at a time, but when it does it’s simply beautiful.
